    Considering that I left Windows because Internet browsing was terrible, I don't know how I would feel trying a Microsoft browser in a Linux environment after so many years.

    In Linux there are a multitude of browsers that integrate perfectly into the system without the need to install any from Microsoft. There is no need and the community has not asked for it. It will not contribute anything that existing ones no longer do. Peroooo ... in this world there are people for everything and some will clap their ears.
