    Well if you guys are thrilled by Microsoft Edge coming to Linux, you'll be overjoyed to learn that Microsoft Defender ATP is Coming to Linux! https://itsfoss.com/microsoft-defender-atp-linux/

    The big question is, WHY?????????

    i want source code. not just some source code. it needs to be the source code that is complete and can build a working executable. i may not read all of it but i trust that enough of the community will, if it's available.

    Because, if the source code is available, it can be made into different types of browsers. Forks of Edge. Or, Edge of Forks...
    Anyway, really cool names can come from Edge. You know, how "IceWeasel" came from "FireFox."

    You'd get browsers with names like "Knife", or "Sword", or "Katana".

    People would say things like "I just downloaded the Khopesh Browser. It's like a heavy version of Edge."
    Or, if someone in Switzerland made some adjustments and called it the "Swiss Army Browser."
    Or you could put an Aerosmith theme into it, and call it "Livin' on the Edge."
    Once it dropped into the Gentoo Repos, it could be "Bleeding Edge" Browser.
    Nightly Builds would be called "Edge of Tomorrow."
    A controversial release could be called "Edgy."

    I'm just saying... this could be fun!

    the Edge Browser is the only browser that can play "ForkKnife!"

    Firefox is, and always has been, not chromium-based.
    It's the one hold out left. (aside from, Apple's Safari, I guess)

    I have Vivaldi.
    No interest in Edge.
    A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

    I could have sworn that I read that Firefox had switched over to Chromium from WebKit.
