Microsoft’s Explorer to retire next year

Microsoft announced the end of its browser Explorer, saying it will go out of support on June 15, 2022 as the company is focusing on its newer browser- Microsoft Edge. The company in a blog said “the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge.”

“Not only is Microsoft Edge a faster, more secure and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it is also able to address a key concern: compatibility for older, legacy websites and applications,” Microsoft said in a blog post.

Explorer was launched in 1995 and was for years the major browser but has since long faced stiff competition from Google’s Chrome, that is now the dominating browser, and Apple’s Safari.

Microsoft launched its new browser – Edge – in 2015.

“Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will be retired and go out of support on June 15, 2022, for certain versions of Windows 10,” the company said in its blog post.
