Chromebook is a system that, as its name implies, is based on the Chrome browser . It is a light and functional system with which it is enough to log in with our Google account to access its content and perform the necessary tasks there..

 

By default, Chromebook only allows the use of Chrome as the default browser but thanks to the integrated function of Linux (Beta) we can install Microsoft Edge which is a Chromium-based browser with new functions since it is not compatible with Chromebook by itself . In this way we will have the possibility of having this extra browser on our Chromebook in case it is necessary or we prefer this option.

 

Let's see how to install Microsoft Edge on Chromebook..

 

 

Note
As we mentioned, it requires the use of Linux (Beta), this is an application with which it is possible to develop software on Chromebook since it allows installing the command line tools, IDEs and Linux code editors to work with applications.
