Send current page's link or all tabs to Microsoft Edge browser or define optional left-click opening rules.

With this extension, you can send HTML links to the Microsoft's Edge browser with a single click. The extension adds a browser action button which when called, sends the URL of the active tab to the Edge browser. You can optionally ask the extension to close the tab when the transfer of the URL completes. Note that similar to any other extensions of the same kind. this one needs a native wrapper to communicate with the external browser. The extension also adds a context menu item for links so that you can send links to the Edge browser with a right-click. To improve your productivity, the extension also includes an option to send links with a left-click. You need to configure the extension from the options page so that it knows which hostnames need to be opened in the Edge browser.

Since the extension uses a native client, it can open a new instance if no open Edge windows are detected. Also, it has a built-in tool to find the Edge executable for you.

The extension also adds a few context menu items to the browser action button to send all tabs in the current window or all tabs from all windows to the Edge browser.

Why I like it:
- It works with right click on a link so you do not need to open the page first and then press a button.
- It can extract the link from the selected text. Just right click and select Extract and Open Text Links in Microsoft Edge.

Extra noch NodeJS installieren? Nein!

Love this extension but some additional scripts to install make me nervous. Also, correct the icon/logo since it is the old Edge logo, doesn't look good.
Works great for me. But 3 star for 2 reasons:
1. It requires some scripting and may feel shady,
2. when I click the button to send in the Edge browser, a new Edge window pops up which is annoying.
There should have an option to send it either as a background new window/tab or as popped up new window in the foreground. Please update it.

Probably dangerous- requires downloading and running a 3rd party batch file- no thanks
