Microsoft has been increasingly supporting Linux, and the latest application coming to Linux is the Microsoft Edge web browser. About a year ago we saw Microsoft Teams released as the first Office app for Linux, and now we’re seeing Microsofts Edge web browser too.

Starting in October 2020, Microsoft Edge on Linux will be available to download from the Dev preview channel. Once available, you will be able to go to the Microsoft Edge Insiders site to download the preview channel of Microsoft Edge on Linux. Alternatively, you will be able to download the application from the native Linux package manager.

Starting in October 2020, Microsoft Edge on Linux will be available for download.

Once Microsoft Edge on Linux is made available, you will be able to follow the link below to download the application. The Beta, Dev, and Canary Microsoft Edge Insider Channels will be made available for Microsoft Edge on Linux; just as they are for the Windows and macOS platforms.

Also, just as with other platforms, Microsoft will be open to feedback on their new Microsoft Edge browser release for Linux. This builds on their goal to serve customers the best way possible.
