Microsoft to retire Internet Explorer

Microsoft announced the retirement of its oldest browser, Internet Explorer after 27 years of service. Microsoft has said that it will end mainstream support for the aging browser and it will finally retire in peace.

First released in 1995 as an add-on package for Windows 95, the browser was provided for free as part of the package by Microsoft. As per the company notification, Internet Explorer will be rendered inoperable from June 15, 2022.

Sean Lyndersay, Microsoft Edge program manager, said “the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft 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,” he said.

“Microsoft Edge has Internet Explorer mode (‘IE mode’) built in, so you can access those legacy Internet Explorer-based websites and applications straight from Microsoft Edge. With Microsoft Edge capable of assuming this responsibility and more, the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will be retired and go out of support on June 15, 2022, for certain versions of Windows 10,” he added.
