Microsoft Edge for Linux

Microsoft’s Edge browser for Linux has been a major topic for over a year and is now generally available. If you’ve been waiting for a stable version of Edge for the open source operating system, it’s now here.

The Redmond corporation began teasing it in early 2019 but there was no further notice afterwards until the recent release.

Edge is available in DEB and RPM formats for Debian and Ubuntu, and in DEB and RPM formats for Fedora and openSUSE.

The feature set is largely the same as on other platforms, with the exception of Microsoft account syncing.

It does not, however, have Windows-specific functionalities such as IE (Internet Explorer) mode which uses Integrated Chromium Engine for modern sites.
