Hello Windows Insider,
19449_spacer.gif
As usual, we’d like to kick off this newsletter with highlights from our latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build for PC and Mobile. This build provides another wave of exciting new Windows preview features — available only to Windows Insiders.

As an Insider, you also have the opportunity to try new Microsoft Edge extensions before the general public. For example, these extensions were first made available to Insiders: Turn Off the Lights, Tampermonkey and Microsoft Personal Shopping Assistant. Extensions are a quick and easy way to customize your browsing experience. You can get other free extensions for Microsoft Edge here like AdBlock and Microsoft Translator. Let us know what you think via the Feedback Hub or contact @MSEdgeDev on Twitter.*
