Social platforms made up of social networks have become an essential element for a large number of users, which they usually access on a regular basis. Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or TikTok, it will hardly be that we are not registered to any of them. If we access them from our Microsoft Edge browser, we must know that we can improve our experience in them through the use of different extensions.
Edge is the Microsoft browser developed to become the natural replacement for Internet Explorer. It has been developed in Chromium and among its features it stands out for being compatible with the use of extensions that will help us provide new features when browsing.
Microsoft has its own Edge add-on store that is still in Beta phase and from where it is possible to download add-ons for the browser. Likewise, having been developed based on Chromium, it is compatible with the extensions available in the Chrome store, which is much larger and has more content.
Plugins for social networks
Next, we are going to see different Egde extensions for social media lovers grouped into different categories.
The social network owned by Mark Zuckerberg is the most popular and one of the pioneers. These plugins for Edge will help us improve our experience.
Facebook Color Changer
This plugin for Facebook allows us to change the style of the social network to themes with custom colors. The extension has among its features 24 preset color themes, among which we can find both light and dark themes. We can also create our own custom themes configured with up to five colors. It applies to both Facebook buttons, such as Messenger and Like. In addition, it has additional settings for the user interface such as the possibility of being able to automatically hide both the menus and the chats. We can download it from the Edge store.

If we don’t want that our friends know when or if we have read their messages this is the perfect extension to block these annoying read receipts. We simply have to install it and we will have nothing to do. The extension hardly takes up any space, since it only takes care of blocking a single line of code to disable Facebook reading clicks.

To do this, remove the trend columns, main menu and other elements that we do not use, so that we can focus exclusively on the tweets. Download Simplifield Twitter for free.

Desktop client for Instagram
This plugin is responsible for providing us with a Instagram mobile experience on desktop of our browser. And it is that if we are used to using the web version of Instagram on our PC, we have verified that it is more limited, since the social network itself prefers that we use its mobile application. That is why this unofficial application enables the possibility of using functions such as direct messages, downloads and viewing stories. We can also upload videos from the PC, take screenshots from the Instagram window and download images. Download this plugin from the Edge Store.
We are talking about a complement specially conceived so that we can download both images, videos and stories from Instagram.
