    Microsoft has announced the availability of its Microsoft Edge Dev Channel for Linux. While Linux users can begin testing out Microsoft Edge on their systems, security researchers can begin searching for and submitting vulnerabilities to the company's new Microsoft Edge Bounty Program.

     

    Earlier this year Microsoft brought its new Chromium-based Edge browser to macOS and now the company has announced the availability of the Microsoft Edge Dev Channel for Linux.

    With this release, the software giant's Edge browser is now available on all major platforms including Windows, macOS, Android, iOS and now Linux. This means that developers will be able to build and test their websites with the same web platform and tools available on macOS and Windows using their preferred environment.

    In its current form, Microsoft Edge for Linux supports a number of the most popular Linux distros including Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora and openSUSE. Going forward Microsoft plans to release weekly builds as it does for its other Dev Channel releases.
