Wasn't it the reason Linux came into being to get away from Microsoft? MS Edge would have to be the most unreliable and unsafe browser ever, but that's from personnel experience.

Well so far so good. The Linux Lite 5 updater updated my MS Edge for Linux today with no issues at all along with many other system updates. Seems well integrated. Smooth fast and flawless as usual for LL.

The MS Edge browser has now gone through three successful updates via the LL 5 updater. The repository seems to integrate well and function properly. Works very smoothly on Linux Lite 5.

Thanks to Jerry's new code MS Edge is now integrated correctly with thunderbird and opens links from email by default. It has also now gone through its 5th successful update on Linux Lite 5.x with no issues at all.

@TheDead  "I understand Teams/Skype could be needed" There is a lot of misinformation concerning these products, and a lot of spin doctoring by MS concerning Teams. In fact corporate business in general is very dissatisfied with Teams and its host of nagging convoluted integration problems with Office 365. At the root of the problem is the topology of modern networks, and the ill advised cost reduction activities that caused business infrastructures to run on virtual server space rather than bare metal, thus removing the option to separately virtualize infrastructure components. Instead of a few lines of NIX, sharing operations are replaced with volumes of JS, horribly convoluted UIs, and a vast sea of user permission problems. The modern corporate workplace is generally backwards now with the workstations on bare metal and the servers on virtual space. Almost makes the mainframe seem sensible again for corporate people.

Yeah... I just meant that with all the COVID thingy, schools and other places use Skype/Teams for reunions, etc.
I didn't say I liked it, I have better things to do though than arguing with the MS drones so I just bend and move on. ;)

Well something worth noting: I'm getting generally lower memory usage numbers with Edge compared to firefox. Around 100MiB less, and that's using Edge's cluttery MS homepage. Kind of interesting. May have to do with html5 which Edge handles better.

It doesnt have HTML5, but Netscape 4.76 used around 40 MB total memory. And it's just a few decades old. ;)

..."HTML 5 WEB STANDARD

You'd think by 2020, every browser would comply with the HTML 5 web standard, which became a standard in 2014. Nope. You'd be wrong. This "test" isn't a benchmark. It just shows how close each browser comes to being in sync with the HTML 5 standard. A perfect score, which none got, would have been 550.

Here, Chrome and Edge tied for first with 528. Firefox scored 511."

It may be just the ads on the LL forum that threw me. Both browsers are about the same with ads enabled. The sublocade ad with the running scroll seems the heaviest so far.

I haven't posted for while about MS Edge on Linux Lite 5.x but all has been well so far up to version 91.xx. Integration and updating has continued to be smooth certainly a bit to do with Jerry's work ethic. I have never been a fan of Chrome or Chromium and I still remain disenchanted with browsers that don't easily run Desktop BASH scripts and posix function scripts from a link. Another issue I have always had with Chromium is the use of flags which are just messy code to handle messy code. If you want to do things quickly and cleanly from your Linux system Firefox is still substantially superior in flexibility and personal security. If MS is truly interested in developing a good browser for Linux desktop systems they need some Linux people who understand the superior security features of a Linux desktop and who don't think like Windows developers.

Currently MS seems clearly at war with google refusing to implement browser logins from google accounts on Chromium based Edge, and they seem to now be, or hope to become the primary developers of the Chromium code base. At the same time Mozilla Firefox is said to be struggling for funding for development, and that does not bode well for future browser implementations in Linux. Gnome's Epiphany browser which could become a good alternative is stalled again, mainly over a lack of developer time/assets.

As we go about our computing days, whether at home or at work, as Linux Lite users we should really consider what a team of developers of Jerry's qualities could do for the future Linux world. In the computing world #1 is certainly not the best, and hasn't been for a long long time... A hard lesson for the future that most people still haven't learned.
