Times have changed a lot, and Microsoft’s war on free software is far behind us. The proof ? Linux users will soon be able to use a Microsoft browser on their machine. The now Chromium-based Edge browser was previously only available on Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS. The version for Linux should be available for download starting in October from the developer channel.
Linux users, who should enjoy the same features as Windows and macOS, will be able to download Microsoft’s browser from the Insider platform or through their system’s package manager.
Since its passage under the Chromium rendering engine, Microsoft Edge has found its audience, so much so that the browser has succeeded, in just a few months, in winning over Firefox.
