Today, Microsoft finally kills Internet Explorer

Share This Post

According to the aforementioned post, there are three main reasons for retiring Internet Explorer and focusing on Microsoft Edge: Improved compatibility – Microsoft Edge comes with a dual engine that supports both legacy and modern websites, including support for functionality like ActiveX controls. Streamlined productivity – Microsoft Edge can easily handle dozens of tabs thanks to the Sleeping tabs feature, and it also sports Vertical tabs, Collections, different profiles, and more. Better security – While Internet Explorer 11 received monthly security patches, Microsoft Edge gets patched against the latest threats in days, if not hours. According to Microsoft, Edge is more secure than Chrome for businesses on Windows 10.

Microsoft has discontinued supporting its once-dominant web browser as of today. This is not surprising, given that Internet Explorer, which is 27 years old, has had less than 1% of the browser market for a long time and its replacement, Microsoft Edge, has been available for 7 years. Sean Lyndersay, the general manager of Microsoft Edge Enterprise, revealed in a blog post in May that “the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 lies in Microsoft Edge,” adding that the desktop version would be decommissioned and support ended on June 15, 2022. While the MSHTML (Trident) engine and in-market Windows 10 LTSC or Server Internet Explorer 11 desktop apps and the MSHTML (Trident) engine are unaffected by the discontinuation, home users should take note.


  • Obviously, the application does not go anywhere, so those who want to take a trip down memory lane can do it anytime, or at least until Microsoft issues an update that removes Internet Explorer for good. After 27 years, the time has finally arrived for Internet Explorer to be buried officially. While those who didn’t like it more than two decades ago didn’t have too many alternatives, today’s offerings are quite interesting, with oldies like Opera or Firefox still around, but some underdogs are definitely worth checking out as well. In this category, Vivaldi and Brave Browser are two of the most flexible and powerful pieces of code. Will you miss Internet Explorer? What are your browsers of choice on desktop and mobile these days? The comments section is all yours, as usual.
