It’s Time To Say Goodbye To Microsoft Internet Explorer 


Average rating: 0

We are all familiar with Internet Explorer from the very first days of browsing the Internet. After several years dominating the browser market, it gradually lost its position to other rivals which are Firefox, Opera, Chrome or Safari. In 2015, Microsoft launched Microsoft Edge, putting an end to its predecessor. However, only until recently, the tech giant has officially announced that it would disable the browser entirely through an update of Edge. Which means that Windows 10 users will not be able to access IE from now on. Internet ExplorerSource: Microsoft

“The Microsoft Edge update will be delivered to all devices—both commercial and consumer—at the same time, and users will be unable to reverse the change. Additionally, redirection from IE11 to Microsoft Edge will be included as part of all future Microsoft Edge updates,” the company stated clearly previously. Once you go to Edge, you never go back to IE. However, this is also predictable because IE has so many flaws compared to other browsers. Most users complain of its slow speed and inconvenience. Also, there are several third-party add-ons and extensions which allow other browsers to accomplish other tasks. For example, you might choose different themes and wallpapers for your Firefox or Google Chrome. Moreover, these browsers might perform smoothly even though there are multiple tabs and windows opened. It’s a common belief that IE’s only usage is to download other browsers and nothing else.  For Apple customers who already have iPhones, iPads or Macs, they would definitely stick to Safari as the default browser.

Microsoft also added “IE11 visual references, such as the IE11 icons on the Start Menu and taskbar, will be removed by the June 2023 Windows security update (“B” release) scheduled for June 13, 2023”. The presence of IE11 will disappear, starting from this June. It was first introduced in 1995 and turns 28 years old this year. It has been essential and irreplaceable for several years because IE was the default browser in Windows. Therefore, it is the only way to start exploring the Internet.

However, Microsoft will continue to support IE mode within Edge by supporting the technology that powers Internet Explorer, the MSHTML and Trident engine. IE users will be transmitted to Edge with their remaining data. “The change to use Microsoft Edge update to disable IE is intended to provide a better user experience and help organizations transition their last remaining IE11 users to Microsoft Edge,” it continued. After the launch of Edge, the software maker has expressed its vision to get back more users who use Edge as their default browser. For more updated news, visit our website regularly.
