MS Edge on Linux.
If you re like me, nothing good will come out of this in the future for Linux.
We shall see, I don’t trust Microsoft so I don’t expect anything good to happen but we never know.
Lol, only the devil s in the know right !
The only good and unexpected thing from MS I could name: free private repositories on GitHub. Not yet a reason to use their software on Linux.
Well it works on Debian buster:
And it’s pretty fast but then it’s just Chrome with a different skin so it should be.
The only reason for me to give it a try would be native Wayland support.
And Edge does appear to be using hardware acceleration for WebGL (but not video decoding), which is nice.
What I really need is a Wayland-ready browser that uses my Google account.
google-chrome-dev does so, but it still has some irritating bugs.
Hell will freeze over, twice, before i’d install it.
You and me both.
IMO the world does not hold enough facepalm & eyeroll emojis to fully convey my sense of cynical contempt for MS encroaching into Nixtopia. As for the concept of Nixers welcoming them with open-arms, gobsmacked is not strong enough to describe my amazement.
There seems to be a fair bit of love for Edge and the MS intrusion.
Hence my elevated sense of engogglement.
I really truly do not understand humans, & sincerely hope my spaceship soon rescues me to go back home.
Couldn’t even put it into better words myself. Room for one more on that spaceship?
MS will be the death of Linux.
Edge is easy to get along with. Testing takes up to 3 minutes.

I still wonder why someone decided to use OMG! on a Linux blog.
