Shortly after Microsoft previewed the first set of extensions for Microsoft Edge, it was revealed the company is also working on a porting tool to allow developers to run Chrome extensions on the Edge browser.
Jacob Rossi, an engineer for Microsoft Edge, tweeted: “Lots of questions on this: yes we’re working on a porting tool to run Chrome extensions in Edge. Not yet finished and not all APIs supported.”
“Since the beginning of the Microsoft Edge project, our road map has always included extensions in order to support a vibrant community of developer innovation on top of the browser, enabling new and interesting scenarios for our customers,” wrote Drew DeBruyne, general manager for Microsoft Edge, in a blog post last week.
A tutorial to learn the basics of CSS
On the Mozilla Developer Network (MDN), developers can find Web guides to help them learn basic language features. For those who are looking to get started with CSS, there is a tutorial that introduces developers to the basic features and language of CSS.
The tutorial includes sample exercises that developers can try on their own computers to see the effects of CSS and features that work in modern browsers. The tutorial is for beginners and anyone who wants to review the basics of CSS. For more advanced resources, MDN has a list of other tutorials.
To get started, a text editor, a modern browser, and some experience working with both are needed. The information section of the tutorial is designed to teach users how CSS works. In the second part of the tutorial, there are examples that show the scope of CSS with other Web and Mozilla technologies.
A full list of tutorials is here.
