Microsoft Edge for Linux: A Browser the Software Giant “Would Like to Do”
Microsoft announced in late 2018 that it’d switch Edge browser to the Chromium engine, the same one that’s being used by Google Chrome.
This decision technically allows Microsoft to convert Microsoft Edge from a Windows 10-exclusive browser to a cross-platform application.
The company has already confirmed Microsoft Edge would be released beyond Windows 10, and existing preview builds also allow the browser to be installed on macOS.
The migration to Chromium would technically allow the company to bring Edge to Linux as well, and given its efforts to get more involved in the open-source world, such a release wouldn’t be surprising at all.
Linux version possible in the long term
