Microsoft launches an “edge browser” for the Linux operating system
Microsoft has finally announced the launch of a stable version of its “Edge browser” for the Linux operating system later this week.
According to The Verge, the US tech giant will officially launch the “edge” supported browser entirely on Linux with regular updates to the stable channels.
On a related note, preliminary versions of “edge” for Linux have been available for over a year.
For users who are already using pre-release versions of “edge” on Linux, The Verge suggests getting the latest stable version by running the command sudo apt install Microsoft-edge-stable.
For users new to “edge” on Linux, the “installer is now available on the Microsoft website,” according to The Verge.
“Edge” is another browser option that may work on Linux distributions where Chrome is not fully supported.
According to The Verge, Microsoft has also added a number of privacy features to “edge” to limit tracking and cookies, and “the Linux version of Edge shares most of the functionality available on Windows and macOS.”
