Microsoft previously announced that Microsoft Edge Chromium will be coming to Linux soon and is expected to arrive next month, along with the release of the October Tuesday patch.
And it turns out that this estimate is not wrong, because, in an announcement released by Microsoft some time ago, the Edge Chromium Dev version will be available next month. Users will then be able to download Microsoft Edge directly from the Downloads page with the .rpm and .deb package extensions.
The features won’t be the same in the Linux version
One thing that is quite surprising for me is, Microsoft said that when the first launch, Edge Chromium on Linux will not bring all the existing features, namely differential updates, sync (such as Password Sync, Tabs and Favorites ), and including reading Aloud.
But don’t worry, because even though not all features will be released at the start, Microsoft intends to bring every existing feature like those present in Windows 10 and macOS.
It should be noted that although the features that will be available when the initial launch is not as complete as what already exists, most of the main features will still be present and available.
