Edge now synchronizes on Linux
It took Microsoft a long time to release the first versions of the Chromium-based Edge browser for Linux operating systems.
One thing that did not apply to the original releases was the support for data synchronization. Data synchronization was available on Windows and Mac OS, but Linux users had to wait.
Now, with Microsoft Edge 91 comes this sync feature on Linux as well. The feature is available in dev versions as experimental, which means that users will need to enable it to use it.
The functionality allows Linux users to synchronize data such as passwords, favorites or extensions. It requires a Microsoft account, but we should expect that… as the company's synchronization functionality requires a Microsoft account on all supported platforms.
To enable synchronization on Linux systems, you need to do the following:
Make sure the Edge is 91.0.831.x or later.
Open the ester address edge: // flags
Search for MSA sign in
Set the flag status to On.
Restart the browser.
The login feature will be available after restart. Select your profile picture and from there log in to your Microsoft account.
The feature syncs data using your account, which means that synced data will be available on all other platforms that use the same account.
Microsoft says the synchronization will take a few seconds to complete.
