    1) Why would you believe it would ever happen?

    2) Could Edge in the Chrome app store be anything more than an Edge UI on top of Blink with all Google's services still the defaults behind the scenes?

    3) Since the Chrome browser is the basis for apps which could run offline, e.g., Text and Caret (the editor), which I don't believe are PWAs, you'd still have the Chrome browser installed. How much storage would a 2nd browser like Edge consume on a Chromebook which may have only a 16GB internal drive?

    I have tried Opera on my Chromebook and it not the best experience. Android apps run in containers and are not quite optimized.

    Using Edge on a Chromebook is pointless. It might cut down on the amount of data that Google gets from the browser, though I am not even sure of that, but it is still a Chromebook and you are still connected to your Google account so it would be an exercise in privacy theater.

    in theory when Edge for Linux is released, chromebooks might be able to run Edge.

      In reply to codymesh:

      If Chrome OS can run Android apps, and there's a version of Edge for Android, could Chrome OS run Android Edge? Of course that leads to the obvious question why anyone would want to run a phone browser on a laptop or a desktop computer (Chromebox).

    Chrome on ChromeOS IS the OS - everything revolves around it. Why on earth would anyone even consider trying to run Credge on a Chomebook. It seems pointless and pretty stupid.
