Next year, support for the once dominant internet browser, Internet Explorer, will be permanently discontinued and replaced by Edge, so we remind ourselves a bit about the history of the program that launched many of us through the Web navegation.
In recent years, Microsoft has become increasingly concerned with trying to dissuade people from the once very popular Internet Explorer browser. Since the introduction of Windows 10 with the company’s new, self-developed Edge browser, Internet Explorer has become increasingly relegated to the background.
Microsoft first virtually discontinued the brand, then stopped supporting the Teams web app, and this year the company’s services like Office 365, OneDrive, and Outlook will no longer work with it.
So the scythe has been hovering over Internet Explorer’s head for a long time, but it wasn’t that long ago, as Microsoft announced that as of the summer of 2022, the browser, which had once had better days, no longer I would. be supported. At least not for regular versions of Windows 10, while long-term licensed enterprise versions will still get at least security updates.
So, we can say that within a year, Internet Explorer will cease to exist for the vast majority of users.
Of course, this is not a big deal, especially since Microsoft itself offers an alternative to the Edge image mentioned above, which has been completely rebuilt on Chromium foundations since its release (eg Google Chrome uses this too), so It works very well for all satisfying modern expectations, plus it is very fast and consumes little memory compared to most of the competitors.
Therefore, it corresponds to everything that Internet Explorer no longer knew in the last decade of its life and therefore lagged behind the competition. But this was not always the case, as it was once the most popular browser in the world, and it was through this that many of us first encountered the wonders of the Internet. Now we would like to remember this story with a gallery and some cool things:
