Microsoft finally brings its Chromium-based Edge in preview form to Linux

Microsoft today announced that Edge is finally available for download on Linux. The Dev channel version of the Chromium-based browser makes it to the platform almost a year after the official announcement and as promised last month.

 

The Redmond giant says that the release supports Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and openSUSE distributions. The browser will be updated weekly, just like the Dev channel builds on other platforms. The company has also posted instructions for the process of installing the packages on various distributions using their standard package management tools, for those interested. However, the easier way is to download and install the .deb or .rpm packages from the Insider website here.

 

As for features, the company is “aiming to provide a representative experience for developers who want to build and test their sites and apps on Linux”. The preview release for Linux currently does not feature many user-facing features such as support for signing into Microsoft accounts – which means that there will be no sync capabilities. However, the company does promise to release these features with a future update.

 

Considering that the release is still in early development, the firm cautions that there will be many “bugs and unexpected behaviors“ and urges developers to send feedback through the browser. Lastly, the company is also accepting submissions for the Microsoft Edge Bounty Program on Linux for security researchers.

 

With the addition of support for Linux, the Redmond firms offering is now present on all platforms that support Chromium.

whats the point  it dont work for 4k   and it  is chromium so its no benefit to web developers  only it would be if they still  had  there old browser engine  . All chromium is the same .EG:  the Google wide web .   I already have  ungoogled   chromium  i bet its no faster  than it ,also i have brave ,  waterfox and Firefox  and mostly  i just use Firefox because  once you  open  a bunch of tabs  Firefox is faster  for me vs  Chromium I got 9 tabs open right now.. Chrome never reached the speed of Firefox for workflow with many open tabs. :tooth:
