1 min read

At the Build 2019 Developer Conference in May this year, Microsoft is expected to warm up the Chromium-based Edge browser and hope to land on the GNU/Linux platform. At the time, the new Edge browser was still in the early stages of beta testing, so there is still a lot of uncertainty. After all, there was no Beta channel at the time, and there was no version for the macOS platform and Windows 7/8 platforms.

After many warm-ups, today Microsoft officially confirmed the Chromium Edge browser will be available on the GNU/Linux platform at the Ignite 2019 conference in Orlando. At present, Microsoft has not announced the specific launch date. Microsoft announced today at the Ignite 2019 conference that the new and modified kernel browser will be available for Windows and macOS platforms on January 15. Another thing that Microsoft announced is that Edge is getting new icons.
