Microsoft releases Preview of Edge for Linux in October

Microsoft will release a preview version of its Edge browser for Linux next month. The Linux version was already announced last year and shown earlier this year. Whether the version for Linux differs from the versions for Windows and macOS is not yet clear.

Linux users will be able to download Edge from the Microsoft Edge Insider website next month, or through the linux package manager. It is not yet clear what day the Edge browser will become available for Linux. Microsoft also does not yet provide substantive details about the preview version. The b├Ętaversion may not have all the functionality in the current versions for Windows and macOS.

Microsoft announced Tuesday during its Ignite event that Edge will be coming to Linux in October. In November last year, Microsoft spoke for the first time about a Linux version of its Chromium-based Edge browser. Earlier this year, Microsoft demonstrated the Linux version of the browser at its Build conference.
