The Microsoft Edge Dev and Canary channels have been available for testing on Linux devices for a while now and, beginning this week, Edge Insiders will also be able to test the Beta channel builds on Linux as well.

The Microsoft Edge Beta channel testing is available for both Ubuntu and Fedora and can be downloaded from the official Edge Insider website here.

As with the Microsoft Edge testing on Windows 10, the Linux preview channels are also split into Canary, Dev, and Beta channels. The builds that roll out almost daily to Edge Insiders in the Canary channel feature all of the latest changes and features while those in the Dev channel get new builds on a weekly basis with new features at a slower pace than Canary but a more stable and usable browser.

The Beta channel is the most stable of the three preview channels and is basically the final round of build testing before features and changes are pushed out the general public using the regular version of Microsoft Edge. Beta builds roll out every six weeks or so.
