While Microsoft Edge is available for desktop and mobile platforms, with the same consistent and powerful web platform and developer tools as on macOS or Windows; but until now, Linux users have been missing in the great fun.
Microsoft Edge for Linux release, currently supports Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and openSUSE distributions, with plans to release weekly builds follow up typical of Dev Channel cadence alongside other supported platforms.
Introducing Microsoft Edge for Linux preview builds
Microsoft launched a preview version of its Edge browser for Linux this month, after officially confirming plans for Edge on Linux earlier in the year; now Linux users will be able to download the preview of the browser.
The company maintained that Web platform and developer tools features for Edge on Linux, including the core rendering behaviors, extensions, browser DevTools, and automation features, should be consistent with other platforms like macOS and Windows. And as this is a Dev Channel preview, it'll receive weekly updates in sync with the Dev Channel on other platforms.
This preview is available from Microsoft’s Edge Insider site or through the native Linux package manager and it is specifically meant for developers who want to build and test their sites and apps on Edge for Linux.
How to Install Microsoft Edge on Linux
Microsoft Edge for Linux can be installed in two ways, with the simplest approach as downloading and install a .deb or .rpm package directly from the Microsoft Edge Insider site, which will configure your system to receive any future updates automatically.
And the second approach is to install Microsoft Edge from Microsoft’s Linux Software Repository using your distribution’s standard package management tools, by following the “Command line installation” instructions on the Microsoft Edge Insider site (deb/rpm).
