Internet Explorer Retires on June 15, 2022

Last Updated: 9 months ago by BrodNeil

Internet Explorer retires, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still use it. Microsoft is releasing a new browser called Edge, designed for Windows 10, and the new Xbox One system. IE will continue to be available on older versions of Windows and Macs.

The Good: Internet Explorer was one of the first browsers to be widely used.

Internet Explorer was one of the first browsers to be widely used. Microsoft created it in 1995, and it has been a part of the Windows operating system ever since. In July 1995, Microsoft released Internet Explorer 1.0 as an add-on to the Windows 95 operating system. Internet Explorer is known for its user-friendly interface and as the first web browser to support multimedia content. It also includes features that make it easy to stay connected with friends and family online.

The Bad: Internet Explorer was often criticized for being slow and insecure.

Internet Explorer has long been the butt of jokes among computer users. It was often criticized for being slow and insecure. However, with the release of Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft made a concerted effort to improve the speed and security of its browser. As a result, IE11 is one of the fastest browsers available, and it includes several security features that make it more secure than previous versions.

The Ugly: Microsoft Edge is not as popular as Internet Explorer was.

Microsoft Edge, the successor to Internet Explorer, was supposed to be better. It has a new design and features that were missing in IE. In addition, it runs on Windows 10. However, it has not been as popular as IE, and there are several reasons for this:

  1. Edge is only available on Windows 10, and many people still use older versions of Windows.
  2. Microsoft has not done an excellent job of marketing Edge and educating people about its advantages over IE.
  3. Some people find the new design of Edge to be ugly and difficult to use.

What’s Next? Microsoft Edge will continue to be developed, and IE users can switch to other browsers.

Microsoft Edge was first released on April 29, 2015, to run alongside Internet Explorer initially and not immediately as a replacement. Edge was designed to be faster and more secure than IE, with a simplified user interface. However, Edge has not been as popular as Microsoft had hoped, and it has lost market share to Chrome and Firefox.

Goodbye, Internet Explorer.
