    Anyone using MS Edge Dev for Linux?

    Since it was announced, I am using MS Edge dev for Linux. I just wanted to test it, but now, I am using it daily. It is getting better with every dev version. Anyone else?

    Tried edge briefly on Linux and once main page content is disabled it is a usable chromium based browser. I don't care for EULA and it's not my default browser on Win 10 either , though there is constant encouragement to set it that way in the settings and every time I end up on any MSN sponsored web page. From Win 10 a try edge now message appears on all MSN pages if not set as default.

    Well, some people have problems.
    It is just a web browser, something new in that area. Why not check it out? Or, is it just ideology?

    Opera is my primary browser but I have found that Edge does do a great job of formatting and printing a PDF file. I found this out when I was trying to print a troublesome PDF and Edge appeared under "open with". I can also say that without a doubt for me that Edge is not unstable. I would use it more but I have a lot of barriers setup in Opera so that remains my standard for browsing. I don't like to be overly or unnecessarily exposed.

    Tried it, then stopped using it. I even stopped using it on Windows. I prefer Vivaldi instead.

    Didn't mention any problems other than the popup on MSN pages while using Win 10. Some browsers such as Firefox, Opera, Brave, and Edge have sponsored content on the main page that can be disabled by the user.
    The EULA is a choice.

    It is about the browser, not about EULA.
    How it works, why one should use it, what it might give, better over other browsers etc. I am a Opera user, or had been one. I still return to Opera sometimes in a day. MS Edge dev for Linux has some problems, but it is still in a dev stage. It is made by those, who use Linux for Linux. Does it matter, if they are paid by MS? If and when the Linux community receives some useful app, I am happy.

    By the way, I read "Terms of use" and it doesn't trouble me. Lot of stuff that troubles the US citizens doesn't trouble me, the EU would look after that.

    This is beginning to sound like a sales pitch for Edge.

    There are those who, for their own reasons, either use or do not use Edge. If they choose to share why or why not, leave it at that.

    "Why not try it?" Because they aren't required to and possibly don't want to. That is enough.

    Testing it now. So far Vivaldi is impressive.
