A few months ago, engineers at Microsoft confirmed that the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge would be coming to Linux devices. Today, the company has kept its promise and made its browser available for this platform.
The new version of Microsoft Edge supports Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and openSUSE distributions. Microsoft plans to release weekly versions, as it does with versions of Canal Dev for other platforms.
To get started, users can download and install a .deb or .rpm package directly from the Edge Insider website, which will configure a system for future automatic updates. Or users can simply install Edge from Microsoft’s Linux software repository. More detailed instructions are available in the Microsoft Chredge-on-Linux blog post, accessible here.

Microsoft already supports the new browser on Windows 7, 8.1 and Windows 10, as well as macOS. The company is including the new Edge browser as part of its Windows 10 20H2 feature update, which began rolling out to users last Tuesday.
