Microsoft Edge for Linux is currently available as Debian/Ubuntu package, as well as a .rpm file for the Fedora and openSUSE users. As of now, only Dev Channel and Beta Channel are available for the Linux users without any Canary channel. Microsoft didn't mention the final release date in the Stable Channel, but it will be this year only.

 

Since the launch of Microsoft Edge for Linux in October, Microsoft has added new capabilities to the browser. It now supports the ability to sign in with a Microsoft account and enable profile sync across your linked devices. Microsoft Edge Beta includes all those improvements that we have seen so far in the Dev Channel.

 

To install the Microsoft Edge Beta on Linux, first, navigate to the Microsoft Edge download page and then click on the download button next to the edition/channel of the build.
