Microsoft Ends Support for Internet Explorer Browser After 27 Years

Microsoft has ended support for Internet Explorer as of today, June 15th. This is reported on the official website. The download page suggests installing the Microsoft Edge browser instead of Internet Explorer.

The browser is disabled in all current consumer versions of Windows 10 and Windows 10 IoT. In Windows 11, Internet Explorer 11 is no longer available, and the default browser for Windows 11 is Edge.

Internet Explorer mode in the new Microsoft Edge browser will be supported until at least 2029 to give developers time to modernize legacy applications.

Internet Explorer launched in 1995 and by 2004 held 95% of the market. In 2015, Microsoft introduced a new browser called Edge. The company calls it "faster, safer and more modern."
