Washington : Microsoft has announced that it will close its iconic Internet Explorer browser in June 2022, as the company is currently considering the future of Internet Explorer (IE). The company launched Internet Explorer in 1995 on Windows 10 in Microsoft Edge. Meanwhile, the company has recently announced the end of IE support from Microsoft 365 online service.

The company said in a statement on Wednesday that the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will be discontinued from June 15, 2022, with Microsoft Edge becoming more capable of this responsibility. Internet Explorer will not support some versions of Windows 10. Internet Explorer was once known as the most used browser in the world. In 2003, the share of Internet Explorer globally was about 95 percent.

Start using Microsoft Edge

After the launch of Firefox (2004) and Google Chrome (2008), Internet Explorer fell behind. Also, the growing popularity of mobile operating systems such as Android and iOS has reduced its use, as these systems do not support Internet Explorer. Meanwhile, if you are a customer who uses Internet Explorer at home and you want to enjoy a faster, more secure and more modern browsing experience, start using Microsoft Edge before June 15, 2022, according to Microsoft.

Movements according to the needs of Microsoft users

If you are an organization that uses Internet Explorer, you may have a large set of Internet Explorer-based websites and apps built over many years. Microsoft found that entrepreneurs have an average of 1,678 legacy apps. For web developers, Microsoft has said that they should plan systematic actions to end Internet Explorer support to meet the needs of users.

Microsoft Edge is better than Internet Explorer

The company says that Microsoft Edge is not only a faster, more secure and modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but also able to alleviate worries about old legacy websites and apps. Microsoft Edge has built-in Internet Explorer mode (IE mode), which allows users to navigate directly to Internet Explorer based websites and applications from Microsoft Edge.
