After much speculation, Microsoft's new browser comes to Linux.
Many things in the tech world were taken for granted, as Microsoft doesn't like Linux and its main browser would never come to the open source side. Well, we're living in new times (not to say crazy).
About 6 months ago, we noticed that Microsoft's Edge browser could have a version for Linux, since it is Chromium-based and has support for the penguin. So it would be a matter of time for this to occur. The confirmation came at Microsoft's Ignite conference of 2019 in Orlando – USA. You can check out the full lecture here. Already the part of the announcement in which the coming of the new Microsoft Edge for Linux is commented, you can check out at 8:24.
With the confirmation of its arrival, Edge joins a wide range of Chromium-based browsers such as Google Chrome, Vivaldi, Opera, Yandex and others. Only Apple's browser (Safari) and Mozilla's (Firefox) browser are left out.
As I mentioned in some articles and lives on the subject, I believe that the vast majority of Microsoft products will be compatible or enhanced with Linux, such as Microsoft Office (which I think comes last), Teams (it It is already in a very advanced stage, with repositories already assembled) and Skype (matching Windows and MacOS versions). This would be very beneficial for those who wanted to migrate to Linux as it would have easier migration.
The release of Microsoft Edge will be on January 15, 2020, initially for Windows and macOS. The Linux version would come later.
