Microsoft fought long and hard to maintain and push its own proprietary browser, even launching Edge, hoping to get away from the stigma against Internet Explorer. However, the dominating market share of Chromium-based browsers finally got to Microsoft, and the company announced it would rebuild Edge with the Chromium source code. Last month, we reported that Microsoft’s Chromium-based Edge was out of development and ready for public deployment.
The refreshed Edge is currently available for Windows, Android, macOS, and iOS, but not Linux. However, those hankering to use Edge on Linux can take heart, as Microsoft has not forget about you. The company has released an Edge roadmap that lists Linux support as a planned feature, though no detail is given as to when we can expect this feature.
We have reviewed this feedback and have a plan to address it. However, we aren’t ready to share a target time frame just yet.
