Microsoft has already announced the imminent arrival of its Chromium-based browser, Microsoft Edge on Linux-based operating systems. Today Microsoft confirms its availability and you can already use it.

Before Linux, Microsoft Edge was available as you know on Windows 10, Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 as well as on macOS and it works wonderfully without problems and without abusing too much PC memory 😉 and I guarantee you this one does nothing to do with the old Microsoft browser.

The browser for Linux is currently available as a preview version in the Dev channel (a channel with weekly updates and fixes), then it will go into Beta before being released for everyone in a stable version.

The preview version is therefore available in the form of .deb or .rpm packages which can be downloaded from the site Microsoft Edge Insider for Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora and OpenSuse.

It is also possible to install it by getting the files directly from the terminal and following these simple Linux commands:

package retrieval, configuration and add additional repositories to APT

curl | gpg --dearmor > microsoft.gpg
sudo install -o root -g root -m 644 microsoft.gpg /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch= amd64] stable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/microsoft-edge-dev.list'
sudo rm microsoft.gpg

Installing our Microsoft Edge browser for Linux

sudo apt update
sudo apt install microsoft-edge-dev 

And There you go ! You can start browsing the web using the browser from Debian, Ubuntu or any other Linux operating system.
