Yup, looks like Edge alright! Microsoft showed off, for a fleeting moment, the new Microsoft Edge build for Linux. The project itself is set to go live at some point in the coming months.
But this is our first real teaser of how the new browser will look.
While no specifics have been provided by the company, it snuck in a screenshot of the Linux version of its new browser at the BUILD developer conference earlier this week. Some accompanying details here would have been welcome, but what can you say?
Other than that Edge on the Linux platform looks pretty much like what one may have imagined it to.
See for yourself:
Of course, Microsoft previously confirmed that it was working on a Linux flavor of its new Edge browser, which is already available on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, macOS, Android, and iOS.
Based the browser on the Chromium engine meant that Microsoft was able to make its browser go cross-platform like never before, expanding its reach beyond the Windows ecosystem. It’s the same technology that powers browsers like Google Chrome and Vivaldi, after all.
It is this very reason that the new Edge now has million upon millions of users, and the application has now become the second most used web browser worldwide.
Overtaking Mozilla Firefox in the process.
It’s arrival on Linux will only help solidify this success.
