After more than two decades, Microsoft is retiring its long-running browser Internet Explorer. According to sources, most users haven’t used Internet Explorer in years. So Microsoft will stop supporting it on June 15, 2022. Instead, users are encouraged to switch to Microsoft Edge, which has IE Mode.
“We are announcing that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge,”Sean Lyndersay, a Microsoft Edge program manager.
The end of Internet Explorer has been coming from a long time. Microsoft ended support for Internet Explorer 11 for the Microsoft Teams last year, and it’s planned to end it from accessing Microsoft 365 services later in this year. Internet Explorer 11 will no longer be supported for Microsoft’s services like Outlook, Office 365, OneDrive and more after August 17, 2021.
The alternative for the businesses will be Microsoft Edge with IE mode. Microsoft made its IE mode for Edge a couple of years ago, and it has called the businesses to adopt this new browser for older legacy websites. Microsoft promised to support this IE mode in Edge until through at least 2029.
