Microsoft Edge Beta for Linux is available
When Microsoft released the Microsoft Edge based on Chromium browser last year, it revealed that it would support Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, and macOS systems at the same time, but there was no Linux system that was the first to be supported at that time. It was not until later that Microsoft released the Microsoft Edge Dev version for Linux systems. Now that six months have passed, Microsoft seems to think it can move on to the next channel, Microsoft Edge Beta for Linux has officially arrived.
The biggest feature of the Beta version is that its stability is better than that of the Dev development version. The frequency of this version is relatively lower. It will not frequently pop up prompts asking users to restart the browser to upgrade. In principle, the Beta version is a stable version selected by Microsoft from the Dev version. Although it is not as good as the stable version, it is at least relatively better for Linux users.
Therefore, if you are using the Microsoft Edge browser on a Linux system, we still recommend you to use the Beta version. In terms of new features, the new Beta version is synchronized with the Windows version of the Microsoft Edge Beta version. Now supported features include replacement themes, install extensions, login to your Microsoft account for data synchronization, etc.
Of course, this is actually not enough for users who are pursuing stability, but we still don’t know when Microsoft will launch a stable version of Microsoft Edge for Linux.
