Microsoft(NASDAQ:MSFT) Edge Reddit AMA: Edge might come into LinuxZDNet #Windows_10June 14, 2019
The biggest tease the company dropped was its apparent willingness to release an Edge version for Linux — a move that was once considered inconceivable.
and something we are proud to give to you, so we aren’t quite ready to commit to the work just yet.
At the time, the developer couldn’t officially confirm officials plans for a Linux build.
Microsoft didn’t commit to a Linux build today either, but now we at least know there’s no technical block that may prevent it from shipping an Edge for Linux version.
Right now, as the Edge team made it pretty obvious, it’s only a matter of taking baby steps.
Devs would most likely want to have a stable release out for all Windows versions first, before committing to additional platforms.
In addition, the Edge team also answered a question on one of today’s most important topics in technology — Chrome’s upcoming extensions API changes that may end up crippling ad blockers .
“We are committed to building features that give users control and transparency over their privacy on the web,” Edge devs said .
“One of our first features is Tracking Prevention with 3 levels of control to choose from, with Balanced setting being the default.”
“- Devs plan to port the reading list feature from the old Edge to the new Chromium-based Edge.- Settings and other pages will also respect the browser’s dark theme.- An extensions syncing feature is coming soon.
