Today something unusual has occurred, since the Internet browser Microsoft Edge has been announced will reach Linux operating systems, and it is not using Wine, but it works thanks to the RemoteEdge tool.
This tool is like a virtual access to a Microsoft Edge browser, which we will access from another Internet browser. This will allow us to use Microsoft Edge on any operating system, be it Linux or MacOSX.
Microsoft Edge until today, was an exclusive browser for Windows 10, something that with RemoteEdge will disappear, since we can access from other operating systems even in a virtual way.
This is achieved thanks to is based on Microsoft's Linux operating system technology, that is, in Azure. RemoteEdge has many of the features of the Windows 10 browser, such as HTML5.
I know this news seems absurd, since you may be thinking that why you want a Windows browser on Linux. The answer is simple, since this browser is geared towards web developers.
Microsoft knows that not everyone uses Windows 10 and has therefore wanted everyone can develop Microsoft Edge extensions even if they haven't installed a Microsoft operating system like Windows 10.
Thanks to this they get more developers wherever they come from and incidentally manage to advertise to your browser, hoping to get more users for Windows 10. However, the browser not ready yet, since the official version will not come out until the end of this month.
Although the truth is I do not know how attractive it could be to develop extensions for the Successor browser to the nefarious Internet Explorer. The truth is that I have never used Edge so I would not know how to give a personal opinion about it.
And you.. What is your opinion of this measure by Microsoft and its RemoteEdge? Do you think it will favor them or is it absurd?
