Internet Explorer is finally dead as Microsoft tells users to move on
The Independent says Internet Explorer, the online browser widely used and equally widely mocked, is finally dead. Microsoft is officially telling users to move on from the 27-year-old application and switch to its newer Edge browser instead.
The software giant is cutting off support for the product from Wednesday 15 June. Internet Explorer (IE) has a clear but contested part in internet history. It was once so dominant that it attracted the attention of US regulators, but became hated by many users and was eventually replaced by Edge.
“Not only is Microsoft Edge a faster, more secure and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it is also able to address a key concern: compatibility for older, legacy websites and applications,” Sean Lyndersay, general manager of Microsoft Edge Enterprise, wrote in a May 2021 blog post heralding the final closure date.
