    Hi guys, just wondering what ad block are people using for edge. I heard getting an extension will help improve battery life. AdBlock Plus isn't released yet and a lot of the other ones seem...dodgy.

    Welcome to the forum

    There is no support for add-ons for Edge, YET, but the ads do kill battery using the version of Flash that Microsoft installs. Your best bet is to use a modified host file. You can find more info in this help thread. HowTo - How To and Master Help for the Surface Pro 4

    Moving this to the Edge forum.

    Add-ons compatibility is supposed to be added to Edge with the anniversary update for Windows 10. The insiders have already had the ability to use add-ons.
