Microsoft can modify chromium. They can add proprietary things to it. Yes you could use edge if you have to critical pages that only works right on edge.

So wait, let me get this straight, people shouldn't install Linux to avoid windows because they might make edge somehow critical to the use of major websites? Why not just use Linux anyways since that's not happening anytime soon (especially not with the market share Chrome and Firefox have)

I didn’t say people shouldn’t install Linux. But even if you do, browser share matters and if Microsoft is abusing their customers and tricking them into using edge in mass, then it will affect you as a Linux user too.
