Microsoft Edge Linux now stable

Post by tlmiller »

More here

I've upgraded on one of my machines, it's actually the same version as the last beta that's now marked stable.

I hate to admit it but I like Edge and use it more than I thought I would in Win10. Havent tried it on Linux yet.

I'm running it on about 1/2 my linux machines. I have it on the Neon install for obvious reasons (only Chromium browser available that's not full Chrome), and I have it on several Debian boxes as well. Thus far haven't bothered installing it on any of the Arch boxes.

Is Edge on Linux as tied to MS services as it is on Windows? On Windows 11 Edge is very annoying. It is hard to change search engines, and when you do you get nags that you are not secure because you are not using the defaults.

No, I haven't had any nags and changed it to DDG or Google on the machines I've got it installed on. It does have the "Bing (recommended)" in the search engine choice, but that's as far as it went. Which is the big reason I don't want Bing, since the search results I've read are ok now, but the constant badgering on the site to use all their other services is just annoying, so I avoid Bing like the plague.
