After 27 years, Microsoft has discontinued its Internet Explorer browser.

The world of the Internet today bids farewell to the Internet Explorer browser, which accompanied the world for more than two and a half decades, after Microsoft announced last year its intention to stop working with its browser after more than twenty-five years of its launch.

According to Microsoft, support for the latest version of the browser on Windows 10 will stop, starting today, June 15, 2022.

Thus, the hour of retirement for Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser has come, after a large number of users deserted this search engine that entered service more than 25 years ago and instead adopted its Silicon Valley-born competitors "Chrome" (from "Google") and Safari (from Apple).

The information giant announced on its blog that "the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is Microsoft Edge."

The company enumerated the advantages of its other browser, "Edge", stressing that it is "faster, safer, and provides a more modern browsing experience", in addition to being "compatible with older websites and applications."
