Internet Explorer will retire on June 15

Internet Explorer will shut down on Wednesday, June 15. According to Microsoft, the Internet Explorer (IE) 11 desktop application will end support for Windows 10 semi-annual channel starting June 15, 2022. Internet Explorer was first released in 1995 as an add-on package for Windows 95. Later, the company began providing the browser for free as part of the package. In 2003, the browser reached a peak of 95 per cent usage, but it was unable to maintain its position, and the user base began to decline dramatically. Microsoft encourages customers to shift to Microsoft Edge with IE mode. "IE mode enables backward compatibility and will be supported through at least 2029," it further said. Microsoft halted new browser feature development in 2016, and this may be the first time the tech giant has decided to phase out Internet Explorer.  Netizens took to Twitter to share their reactions to the news.

Many competitors entered the browser market and began offering better user interfaces, faster internet speeds, and smoother performance. It appears that Internet Explorer was unable to keep up with the competition, and it has gradually devolved into nothing more than a default explorer used to install other browsers.
