RIP IE: Microsoft finally retires Internet Explorer

By on June 8, 2022 in Blog, Microsoft, Topical

Internet Explorer, the browser that provided many people’s first foray into the world wide web, is officially no more.

Microsoft has officially retired IE, some 27 years after it was first released. Though many of these years saw IE take a near total market share, it has since fallen out of favour and the time has now come for Microsoft to withdraw support for its legacy system. Anyone trying to use IE now will either find it totally disabled, or be presented with a popup instructing them to download Edge instead.
