Windows Insiders, get ready to for the release of a new Edge extension pretty soon. Earlier this week, Microsoft’s Web Platform team tweeted that it’s currently working with Canadian company AgileBeats to help them bring their password manager 1Password to Microsoft Edge:
We're happy to announce we're working closely with 1Password to release a preview extension to Insiders – lighting up the required APIs soon

1Password already has extensions for Firefox, Chrome and Opera, but fans of Microsoft’s lightweight browser may be pleased by this upcoming addition. For those unfamiliar, 1Password is a premium service that lets you collect all your passwords in one safe place.
The service is nearly ubiquitous thanks to desktop apps on Windows and macOS as well as mobile apps on iOS and Android, and there is even an alpha UWP on the Windows Store which is also being developed for the HoloLens. We’ll let you know when Windows Insiders will be able to get the Edge extension from the Windows Store.Further reading: 1Password, Apps, Microsoft Edge, Password managers, Windows 10
