You get similar assessor, debuggers, and consoles, so it’s easy to run the same tests wherever you are working, and on whatever OS you’re utilizing.

As Edge’s plug-ins share a common format with other Chromium programs, a similar plug-in can be conveyed through other program stores, improving tool development.
Adding an extension to the developer tools is like adding one to the browser. Explore to a store, click on the tool you need to include, and let it download and install.
