Internet Explorer will be shut down by Microsoft next week

The majority of us are familiar with and have used Microsoft’s first web browser, Internet Explorer. Despite being one of the first commercially available web browsers, the browser has become somewhat outdated over time. Now that Microsoft has officially put it to rest, here’s everything you need to know.

Microsoft ending support for Internet Explorer

Microsoft revealed the web browser’s retirement schedule last year, after ending support for Microsoft 365 on Internet Explorer in August 2020. Most versions of Windows 10 will discontinue supporting Internet Explorer on June 15, 2022, according to the Redmond giant.

As a result, you won’t be able to use Internet Explorer after next week, and those who do will be moved to the Edge browser. Last year, Microsoft published an official blog post detailing the consequences of IE’s retirement.

Internet Explorer’s demise isn’t surprising, as the web browser had been struggling to keep up with competitors like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and even Microsoft’s Chromium-based Edge browser. As a result, Microsoft included an IE mode within Edge and pushed Windows users to switch to it before the traditional Internet Explorer software for desktops was retired.

It’s also important to mention that, while the Internet Explorer 11 desktop software will no longer support most versions of Windows 10, it will continue to support Windows 8.1, Windows 7 ESU, Windows SAC, and Windows 10 IoT LTSC. Furthermore, users who want to utilise Internet Explorer on unsupported Windows versions can use Edge Chromium’s dedicated IE mode to load old websites and applications that aren’t compatible with Edge or other Chromium-based browsers.
