Microsoft is working to bring its new Edge browser based on the Chromium engine, users of Linux in the future. Sean LarkinA technical program manager Team Edge, recently shared a poll on Twitter (via HTnovo), Making a series of questions about web development in Linux, including how developers hope to install a browser on their machines.
The tweet in question says that Microsoft is "developing requirements" to bring the browser to Linux, so you can still take some time before it is publicly available. However, it is a clear indication that the company is working to make this happen, and could come sooner rather than later.
??We on the @MSEdgeDev team are fleshing out requirements to bring Edge to Linux, and we need your help w/ some assumptions!??
If you're a dev who depends on Linux for dev, testing, personal browsing, _please_take a second to fill out this survey! ?https://t.co/PCerGONmCG
