    Microsoft Edge Browser on Linux and Mac? Not Going to Happen...


    Microsoft Edge is the name of the new Windows 10 operating system's browser and it will be offered on both PCs and smartphones as a universal app, so many people are wondering whether Redmond has any plans to launch it on non-Windows platforms as well.

    On the sideline of BUILD 2015, Microsoft Edge engineers explained that the browser is designed to work on Windows devices and there’s absolutely no plan right now to launch it on Linux, Mac OS X, Android or iOS.
    What’s more, Windows 7 users won’t get to use Microsoft Edge pretty much because Windows 10 is offered as a free update for this Windows version, so in case you do want to try out the new browser, you just need to update your PC to get it.
    Microsoft Edge will be provided exclusively in Windows 10 on PCs, tablets, and smartphones, and will be offered at first together with Internet Explorer to address any compatibility issue that might arise.

    Makes sense.. It's a Win10 app and there is no need to port it over for any other OS.
