Microsoft announced that new Chromium Edge browser will be coming out on January 15 during Ignite 2019 conference. Although a lot of people thought that Microsoft will release the browser for Windows 10 following the initial announcement few months earlier, the company revealed it will be bringing the browser in other operating systems. And now, the company has noted that it will be releasing the browser to Linux as well in the coming months following the initial release.
This isn’t the first time we have heard about Edge’s potential release on Linux. Few months earlier, rumors surfaced regarding Edge’s release on Linux after it was discovered that Linux was included in the experimental flags that user could open using flags on the browser.
Shortly after the discovery, Microsoft removed the flags and now, the company has revealed that Linux will be supported by Linux. In a recent tweet, Windows Central Senior Editor Zac Bowden shared a photo to reveal that we will be getting Edge on Linux in the coming months following the initial release.
