Microsoft Edge for Linux finally supports synchronizing data
Microsoft pushes Microsoft Edge Dev 91.0.831.1 to Linux users. In this version, Microsoft finally brings data synchronization to Linux users. After installing the development version, Linux users need to enable the experimental option and log in to the Microsoft account after enabling it.
The currently supported synchronization items include bookmarks/favorites, account numbers, and passwords, extensions, etc. The history synchronization function needs to wait a while and has not yet been supported.
To enable the synchronization function, Linux users should go to the edge://flags page to search for the “MSA sign in” option and enable it. After enabling it, restart the browser and log in to the Microsoft account.
After enabling the above functions, please click on the avatar in the upper right corner of the browser and enter your Microsoft account in the configuration file dialog box to log in. Currently, only Microsoft personal account login is supported. AAD accounts are not supported. After logging in, the browser will pop up a prompt asking you whether to enable account synchronization. Just select synchronization here.
The new data generated by the subsequent browser will be synchronized to the server to support synchronization with the Microsoft Edge browser with the same account on other computers, and the saved password can be used in the Microsoft Authenticator.
