Internet Explorer is a browser that is a staple of the Internet and has been part of its construction over the years. This Microsoft proposal has been around for a long time and has always been one of the most used by users in many situations.
Internet Explorer had its end announced some time ago, with a set date and all. That moment arrives this week and so it’s time to say goodbye to this browser. There is no shortage of alternatives and even Microsoft has a new proposal that everyone is trying out.
The end of Internet Explorer has arrived
It is not normal for software to have a lifespan as long as Internet Explorer. Microsoft kept its browser active for 27 years, not always in the most logical and up-to-date way. Still, he was able to catch up and surf the Internet all these years.
Its end was a certainty and this was announced by Microsoft some time ago. After having stopped its development, it limited itself to keeping only the security updates, while trying to limit its presence in Windows, with the new Edge.
Microsoft ends support for this browser
Because the moment announced in May of last year is just around the corner and this week Internet Explorer comes to an end. It will be on June 15, tomorrow, that this Microsoft browser loses support from the well-known software creator.
From that moment on, the browser that marked the Internet will lose all support from Microsoft. This means that you stop having new versions, security updates and any other associated activity to keep yourself trouble free.
Edge will be the alternative that is offered
Naturally, Microsoft will not leave its users without a solution to browse the Internet. We are talking about Edge, the replacement for Internet Explorer, which is already being used by many and is even present in Windows 10 and 11.
This is an important moment and one that marks the end of an era in the world of technology. Internet Explorer was one of the browsers that opened the World Wide Web to many users, long before Google and many other giants existed and were the heavyweights they are today.
