Microsoft Edge (Chromium) browser for Linux is now available

Microsoft Edge (Chromium) for Linux is now available in the Stable Release Channel. If you are using Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, or OpenSUSE, you can download and install Microsoft Edge.

Last year, during the Microsoft Ignite //2020 virtual event, Microsoft announced that their Chromium Edge browser is going to get some love for Linux, which took a month to roll out to the Dev Channel, and 7 months to roll out to the Beta Channel.

A year after the release of the first preview build of the Microsoft Edge (Chromium) browser for Linux in the Dev Channel, Microsoft now announced the general availability of the Edge browser for Linux.

Microsoft Edge for Linux supports a variety of Linux distributions which includes Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Linux Mint.

There are two ways to get started with Microsoft Edge on Linux. The first and simplest approach is to download and install a .deb or .rpm package directly from the Microsoft Edge site, which will configure your system to receive future automatic updates.

If you prefer, you can also install Microsoft Edge from Microsoft's Linux Software Repository using your distribution's standard package management tools, by following the "Command line installation" instructions on the Microsoft Edge Insider site (deb/rpm).
