FDM doesn’t install any extension in Edge browser as the application has worked fine on Windows 10 v1511 without such. You can’t write off the possibility of official FDM extension for Edge browser in the near future that too, considering Windows 10 anniversary update which brings extension support for Edge, is not far away.
Chrome browser extension for the latest version is available here on the web store. When downloads are complete, FDM shows notifications on Windows 10 for IE and Edge browsers.
Note: FDM 5 works on Windows 10/8.1/7 (not available for XP) and Mac OS X , but still FDM 3 will continue to work on Windows XP.
