    Windows Store censoring Edge extensions?


    I want to make this clear - I'm not complaining about a specific category of extensions or recommending them as it is against the rules.

    However if you search for "ublock origin" in the store it finds nothing.

    It obviously does exist as the link is mentioned by every Windows website in the world (and it works) so why is the store blocking it?

    If they censor this then what else?

    Not sure what Microsoft Store you are querying, but it looks like the extension is located on the New Zealand MS Store.

    I think it's in Beta right now and this is a preview.

    From developers site:
    Note: This port of uBlock Origin to Microsoft Edge is in early development

    While most of the code in this extension is shared with upstream, the platform layer is not finished and there is no guarantee of stability, performance, or complete feature parity until the extension is published on the Microsoft Store.

    Installation

    You can download a Preview Release from the Microsoft Store.
    To install beta releases directly from GitHub, you will need to side-load the extension:

    1. Download the latest release from the Releases page
    2. Extract the zip file somewhere safe (it will need to remain there as long as you use the extension)
    3. Browse to about:flags in Edge and turn on the option Enable extension developer features
    4. Restart your browser
    5. Go to Extensions in the browser menu and click Load extension
    6. Select the uBlock0.edge folder you extracted earlier
    From Windows store
    Description

    Finally, an efficient blocker. Easy on CPU and memory.

    PREVIEW: Try this extension early and report any issues at Issues . nikrolls/uBlock-Edge . GitHub
