Edge browser was introduced by Microsoft in Windows 10 and it is considered as a huge improvement over the Internet Explorer. Windows 10 also has a dedicated app for watching YouTube but I prefer to watch the YouTube videos in the edge browser. Sometimes, while navigating through the videos, you might found some very good videos that you want to download for later viewing. You can download YouTube videos in edge browser with the help of a simple extension called Tampermonkey. This extension allows you to have a button on the video page, clicking which you can download YouTube videos in desired quality. You can also download the audio of a YouTube video in mp3 or aac format.
