Microsoft has decided to shut down Internet Explorer, which has been in service for the past 25 years. The company has announced that Internet Explorer will be discontinued on June 15, 2022 next year and will be replaced by Microsoft Edge.
Sean Lindersay, program manager at Microsoft Edge, has announced that Internet Explorer on Windows 10 will now be replaced by Microsoft Edge. He also said that the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will retire on June 15, 2022.
The company developed the Microsoft Edge Internet Explorer mode two years ago. It is now replacing many transactions. It will also replace the old website with a Chromium-based browser and has adopted a number of related transactions. Internet Explorer mode is an old Active X control site and is still used for many transactions.
Last year, Microsoft withdrew Internet Explorer support from its Microsoft team’s web app. Internet Explorer support for Microsoft’s 365 services will be withdrawn by the end of this year. So now support for Microsoft’s Office 365, OneDrive, Outlook and other services will be discontinued after August 17th.
For the past five years, Microsoft has been trying to get its customers to stop using Internet Explorer.
