Microsoft is finally bidding farewell to Internet Explorer, the most hated product of its company. Internet explorer will be gone after almost 25 years of its service because it is one of the aging browsers neglected by today’s generation of youngsters. Microsoft has finally decided to end this service on June 15, 2022.
“We are announcing that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge,” says Sean Lyndersay, a Microsoft Edge program manager. “The Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will be retired and go out of support on June 15, 2022, for certain versions of Windows 10.”
Windows 10 Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) will still include this version of the browser next year, but all consumer versions will end next year. People in business will have Microsoft Edge with IE mode as an alternative. A few years ago, the Microsoft Edge allowed companies to adopt a new Chromium-based browser for all older legacy websites.
The tech giant has clarified that IE support will result in the Edge until 2029. Internet Explorer 11 for Microsoft team web application ended last year, and this year the company plans to end Microsoft 365 services. The company has tried to stop this service for the past five years. Edge, which started in the year 2015, become the reason for ending this browser.
Once, this browser was used by every computer enthusiast and had a steady trajectory for nearly two decades. But its share of browser started ending in 2010 with more than 5% of the dip. In the death announcement, the company specified that Internet Explorer has become slow and is no longer compatible with fast-paced devices.
It has managed to stay for 26 years, and now it is getting less secure. The company has continued to ship IE with windows to help to incorporate apps to keep them functioning,
