Microsoft yesterday launched an open beta for the Chromium-based Edge browser for Linux. Users of Debian / Ubuntu or Fedora / openSUSE distributions can now use a web browser To install.
Microsoft has been working on the Linux version of its Edge browser for a long time. The first bold hints date back to mid-2019, and an official announcement followed a year later. In October last year, Microsoft released the first release for Linux on the Edge Developer Channel.

The beta version is Edge 91, which was released only last week, and which comes with some new features. For example, the browser now has a new print feature that allows converting the page to PDF format. Additionally, Edge will ask future users if they should close multiple tabs simultaneously.
There is currently no information on when the stable version is due to be released. Given the long time it took to release a beta, it probably took quite some time.
