Microsoft Edge Browser for Linux Possibly in the Works 

Microsoft is hard at work on migrating Edge browser from its very own EdgeHTML engine to Chromium, and after releasing preview builds for Windows 10, the company is now focusing on other platforms as well.

 

Microsoft is hard at work on migrating Edge browser from its very own EdgeHTML engine to Chromium, and after releasing preview builds for Windows 10, the company is now focusing on other platforms as well.

 
For example, one of the short-term priorities for the software giant is to bring an early version of Microsoft Edge browser to macOS, and as we told you a few minutes ago, the download links are already live unofficially.

Because it’s based on Chromium, Edge would be able to run on more than just Windows 10 and macOS, so it should technically land on any platform where Google Chrome is also available.

According to a recent slide shown by Microsoft at the Build developer conference and spotted by Neowin, the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge could also make its way to Linux at some point in the future. The session, which was called “Moving the web forward with Microsoft Edge” focused on the efforts that Microsoft makes in the browser world and the features coming to the application.Chromium for LinuxThe slide you see here lists the platforms where Microsoft Edge will be able to run, and as you can see, it includes previous Windows versions, Windows 10, macOS, Android, iOS, and Linux.

Microsoft Edge has already been confirmed on all platforms except for Linux, so it’s safe to assume that an announcement in this regard could follow very soon.

Of course, we shouldn’t take this as a confirmation that Microsoft Edge is coming to Linux, albeit such a version of the browser simply makes sense. Chromium runs super-smoothly on Linux anyway, so there’s basically no reason for Microsoft not to bring its browser to the platform, especially given its Linux push recently.

We have reached out to Microsoft hoping for a confirmation that Edge is coming to Linux and we’ll update the article when and if an answer is offered.

Hmmm, people install linux to avoid microsoft spying, .... but they are going to install and use Microsoft's Edge browser in linux?

That doesn't make sense.

 

It is better to use other browsers in linux, or just use Win10 and Microsoft Edge.

 

p.s.: A little secret: From the moment you access the internet, you are always under "big brother's" eye. :D :D :D
