Following the launch of WSL2, the addition of exFAT technology to the Linux kernel, and the announcement of the first Microsoft Linux Conference, Microsoft again aimed at Linux. This time, Linux users are likely to welcome a new Edge browser.
Microsoft Network Technology Manager Sean Larson posted a message on Twitter saying that the Edge development team is collecting and refining the need to introduce Edge into Linux, so it has produced a questionnaire that developers who use Linux will help fill out. The content of the questionnaire is mainly about the preference of the respondents for Linux distribution, the scenarios and requirements of using web browser on Linux, and so on.
For this matter, some netizens think that MS Edge is just Chromium wearing a coat, and introducing it into Linux will only add another congestion to the bustling browser market. Others feel that this will be helpful for the development of MSFT open source binaries in Chromium Edge.
At present, there are various Chromium-based browsers available on Linux distribution, foreign media.fossbytesMicrosoft is removing most of the Google-related content from Chromium source code, so it is also an option for users who want to have a Google-free browser experience.
Of course, this is just a survey, which can be said to reveal Microsoft's intention to introduce Edge browser into Linux, but there is no guarantee that Edge for Linux will happen. After all, the new Edge versions on Windows are still in beta and are not yet officially ready.
