Microsoft Edge is coming to Linux
Microsoft’s Edge web browser designed by Microsoft for Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile and Xbox One is coming for Linux. When Microsoft announced it would migrate its Edge browser to the Chromium engine, it promised to bring it for every popular platform.
Microsoft Edge has been developed for Linux since last year
At that time, Linux was not seen as one of these platforms. Last year, it was realized that Microsoft was working on the Linux version. Beginning in October, Linux users will be able to download the browser from the Edge Insider website or via their native package manager.
Linux users will enjoy the same experience as users on Windows and MacOS, as well as the built-in privacy and security features. In particular, the company tried to keep the Edge experience on Linux the same as on other platforms. The company plans to specifically optimize the touch screens for the Edge web browser. Also included in their plans are accessibility features and developer tools for Edge.
Edge is available for download for Windows 7, 8 and 10, as well as for MacOS, iOS and Android.
