First I would like to say, that it's great to see that Edge will also have support on legacy OS like Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. But I can't find on the Edge Insider website, if there will be support on Server OS. So I would like to know if you have any plans on supporting Edge on for example Windows Server 2008 R2, Server 2016 and Server 2019?
I really hope there will be support on Server OS, because when you have a large Citrix environment, users will also browse on the internet on those servers. And the users don't like to use Internet Explorer for browsing :)

@Rob Seiwert I'm running "Version 18.104.22.168 (Official build) beta (64-bit)" on Windows Server 2019 with a Remote Desktop Session Host role (also known as Terminal Server, but not Citrix one). It runs fine. I've installed it from an .MSI offline download.

@Mantvydas No, we face the same issue like @Rob Seiwert . The problem ist not "user-based", it's "access-based". Regardless of user/admin rights, Edge goes crazy if you try to open it in a RDP or Citrix Session. But if you access the server over console it works.
You wrote, you installed RDS role on the server, but did you manage to open Edge in a RDS SESSION or only over the CONSOLE?
This is our setup:
Edge Dev V 22.214.171.124 64bit
Windows Server 2019 1809 17763.652
Citrix Virtual Apps 1903

@Chrizzly We see a white screen too via ICA session. May be https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2018/04/18/running-google-chrome-on-citrix-xenapp-and-xendesktop/ fixes this.

Hey guys, we made it work! Thanks to the hint of Thilo, we made the following registry change:
1. Open Registry Editor
2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\CtxHook
3. Create a REG_SZ string "ExcludedImageNames"
4. Enter the value "msedge.exe,nacl64.exe"
The new Edge starts now without any issues in Citrix and RDS Session...!

It will be. Things take time & we are, actually, not all that long into this. Moving along apace, really, considering the time-frame. We only started sometime in April. And, less than a mere 4 months later the Beta Channel has only just been released; and its update Builds a whooping 6 wks apart. It's a big endeavour for the Team plus wading through heaps of Feedback whilst they are building. Things are being added piecemeal, too. Pretend it's a Christmas stocking, smiles coming one at a time. But, certainly, THE Windows browser, in due time, will, also, be on Win Server.

"Love to get rid of both IE and that "thing" from Google."
Thanks, I always appreciate a good laugh and this ^ sure did the trick IE reminds of a old nag that is put out to pasture, but, keeps trying to come back. "Git", already. Go enjoy your retirement, eat grass & be happy, lol. What?, does google have a "thing"? (wink)
