title says it all.

Will the Password Manager ever work with Edge?

Hi,
Yes, it will :-)
Microsoft still doesn't widely allow developers publish extensions for Edge. We did some steps which should grant us early access so we can build and test extension for Edge, but we are still in phase of negotiation with MS.
I hope that it will not take long time and you will find us there.

Yep.

Microsoft has now pretty much removed support for Internet Explorer browser, and is depreciating support for Edge as well.  Moving to a Chromium-based browser in the future, so don't expect Edge to be around much longer or supported.

One reason for a fall-down is because Microsoft never made Edge available on XP and higher OS's, so market share never did grow to where it could've been...

Edge will soon be a Chromium based browser. Theoretically that means that Chrome extension should also work on Edge
after the changeover.
