Microsoft once again recalled the need to stop using the outdated Internet Explorer browser, version 11 of which will no longer exist on Windows 10 in June 2022, and Edge has already taken its place. Apparently, some users still resist innovation, and the company is forced to release reminders.
“Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) desktop app will be deprecated on June 15, 2022 for certain versions of Windows 10. This means the IE11 desktop app will no longer be supported and any further user attempts to access it will be redirected to Microsoft Edge.”says in it statement companies.
Microsoft has emphasized that some of the legacy browser’s unique features will be available in Edge compatibility mode. IE mode allows users to access legacy websites and apps through Edge until those resources are updated.
The company announced the impending demise of Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10 back in August 2020 and began phasing out browser support for its services. In August 2021, most Microsoft 365 apps and services stopped working in the browser, in October it lost support for the Google search service, and in December the company made the proprietary toolbar in it inaccessible.
The Edge browser, which replaced IE, has already found its audience: depending on the version StatCounter, with a global share of 9.6% in February, slightly below Safari’s 9.77%. And Chrome remains the leader at 64.89%.
