Microsoft said in a statement that it will unplug Internet Explorer on June 15, 2022. It will be replaced by the Microsoft Edge browser, which has been with us for a few years and has recently switched to Google Chrome’s browser engine, Chromium.
The location of Internet Explorer is different for many users. It was used quite a lot in its first years. At the time, the competition with Netscape was on the agenda. But over the years, Internet Explorer has faced other competitors and has lost its popularity. The fate of Internet Explorer, whose usage rate has decreased considerably, has been determined.
Microsoft Edge project manager Sean Lyndersay said: “The future of Internet Explorer in Windows 10 will be Microsoft Edge. The Internet Explorer 11 desktop browser will be discontinued on June 15, 2022 in current versions of Windows 10, and support will cease.”
After Internet Explorer support is discontinued, the browser will take place in the Windows 10 long-term service channel (LTSC) for another year, but Internet Explorer support will end in all Windows 10 user versions. Although there is no exact and definitive statement from Microsoft, Internet Explorer will most likely be removed from the system in June 2022 or the first update after that.
Some companies’ programs, websites or business styles may depend on Internet Explorer. So what will be the situation of them? For them, Microsoft Edge has had an integrated IE mode for several years. This mod also includes ActiveX controls for older sites and systems. It has been announced that this IE mode in Edge will be kept by Microsoft until 2029. (Morning)
