It appears µBOL is going to be fully compatible with Edge but this was only added 2 days ago, not in a release.
Code:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
#
# This script assumes a linux environment

set -e

echo "*** uBOLite.edge: Creating web store package"

DES=build/uBOLite.edge
rm -rf $DES
mkdir -p $DES

echo "*** uBOLite.edge: Copying reference chromium-based files"
cp -R chromium/* $DES/

# Edge store requires that all DNR rulesets are at the root of the package
# https://learn.microsoft.com/answers/questions/918426/cant-update-extension-with-declarative-net-request
echo "*** uBOLite.edge: Modify reference implementation for Edge compatibility"
mv $DES/rulesets/main/* $DES/
rmdir $DES/rulesets/main
# Patch manifest.json
node tools/make-edge.mjs

echo "*** uBOLite.edge: Package done."
GitHub - uBlockOrigin/uBOL-home: uBO Lite home (MV3)

Edit: this does not mean MS Store availability, only Edge compatibility.

I have a problem with uBOL , sometimes when i click the icon its loading blank (white) and i can not drag the slider.
I have the same problem on Edge, not using it at the moment for (among others) that problem.
Hope a new version with Edge compatibility (like @oldschool posted) will fix this.

This was posted as a commit at Create a MVP version of uBOLite for Firefox · gorhill/uBlock@cbfd2ad Other than @gorhill's comments I have no idea what this means for MV3 on Firefox in the short of long term, though MV2 support will hopefully continue well into the future.
Code:
 Create a MVP version of uBOLite for Firefox

What does not work at the time of commit:

Cosmetic filtering does not work:

The content scripts responsible for cosmetic filtering fail when
trying to inject the stylesheets through document.adoptedStyleSheets,
with the following error message:

  XrayWrapper denied access to property Symbol.iterator
  (reason: object is not safely Xrayable).
  See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Xray_vision for more
  information. ... css-declarative.js:106:8

A possible solution is to inject those content scripts in the
MAIN world. However Firefox scripting API does not support MAIN
world injection at the moment.

Scriptlet-filtering does not work:

Because scriptlet code needs to be injected in the MAIN world,
and this is currently not supported by Firefox's scripting API,
see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1736575

There is no count badge on the toolbar icon in Firefox, as it
currently does not support the `DNR.setExtensionActionOptions`
method.

Other than the above issues, it does appear uBO is blocking
properly with no error reported in the dev console.

The adoptedStyleSheets issue though is worrisome, as the
cosmetic filtering content scripts were designed with ISOLATED
world injection in mind. Being forced to inject in MAIN world

Great seeing it developing. I rely on original uBO's 3rd party blocking and the only way to use a different DNS with my ISP is to do it via over HTTP. I wonder if there's a different solution for3rd party blocking that can probably be done in Edge or Firefox.

Anyway, will try this out again soon :)

Simple questions: Is this better than UBO and is this the future of UBO, meaning will this replace UBO?
@Azazel is correct, it has less capabilities than µBO but according to @gorhill
Maybe. Maybe not. It depends on:

Websites you visit
How you configured uBO
How you configured uBOL

In short, only you can tell.
