@Fabi_450 Thanks for reaching out, and welcome to our community. Currently, we don't have any news to share about Microsoft Edge on Xbox, but we will definitely let you all know if we do.

@Fabi_450 The new Microsoft Edge is based on Chromium and Chromium is a win32 app. Xbox One runs a form of Windows 10 that only supports UWP apps. Microsoft hasn't thought this out. They're ditching UWP and yet advocating for it. The conflict continues in the Office suite too with OneNote.

@pneenkoalabear Thank you all for your responses.
So if I am getting it right, does your post also mean that the new Xbox Series X console will have the "old" edge browser? In my case the browser on the xbox one works pretty good, but there are a few sites which are not supported and that is bad.
Hope that they can work it around.

@Fabi_450 I doubt Microsoft will ever do such a thing. In fact, it would be another small step to making the Xbox a regular PC - and they will NEVER do that. The Xbox is heavily subsidized (compared to PS), and pushing the Xbox as a PC replacement is the last thing Microsoft wants.
I wonder if the Chromium addon works in Kodi for Xbox.

Microsoft just released the WebView2 browser control component that is based on the Chromium Edge browser.
@pneenkoalabear This can also be used from UWP apps.
This should provide the XBox developer team all they need to make an XBox shell for Chromium Edge. I hope this will be put on the roadmap ASAP.
It's not "literally impossible", you're just uninformed. Webview2 (the key component to make this happen) will be generally available by end of the year as part of .Net Core 3.1 on all platforms where .Net Core is currently available. It will likely onyl be a matter of a few more months depending on the priority they're giving to this (which I imagine is not very high). See the following links for more information about the years worth of work that have already been put towards these initiatives.
