The transition from EdgeHTML to Chromium engine, allowed Microsoft to turn Edge into a cross-platform browser.

Microsoft Edge browser so far, in addition to PC computers and Macs is available for Android and iOS gadgets, and now you can download and install it on your Linux computer.

Edge has been tested on the Linux platform for months in Dev and Beta channels, and now Microsoft has concluded that it has a stable version so all users of Linux distributions can download the Microsoft Edge for Linux via this link.

Microsoft says it has added more security and privacy features to the Edge, including cookies and tracking restrictions, and the Linux version of the browser contains most of those same features that are available for Windows and macOS operating systems.

We’d love to get some comment from the Linuxers who tried Edge to tell us if they’re at least a little happy with Microsoft now that they couldn’t even think of for years.
