Microsoft Officially Ends Internet Explorer On June 15 2022

Internet Explorer

Everything has come to an end – and Microsoft has finally announced that for Internet Explorer as well. After the group has already put a lot of effort into the successor to the popular web browser, there is now a date for the IE support end: It is June 15, 2022.

The future is Microsoft Edge

The seemingly never-ending grace period for Internet Explorer will still run for over a year. Its successor, Edge, has been available since 2015 and is now six years old. He’s even had a complete restart with a new engine. It seems like it’s time for Microsoft to pull the plug on IE. In the Windows Blog, Sean Lyndersay has now announced how and, above all, when this will take place.

Earlier: Microsoft Forcibly Launch Sites In Edge Browser Instead Of Internet Explorer

It says: “Over the last year you may have noticed that we have moved away from Internet Explorer (” IE “) support, for example by announcing the end of IE support through Microsoft 365 Online Services. Today we are on the next stage of this journey: We announce that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 lies in Microsoft Edge. ” The latter is nothing new. The transition should also be easy for those who still stick to IE.

Microsoft Edge Is Faster and Safer

According to Microsoft, Microsoft Edge not only offers a faster, safer, and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer but is also able to solve a central problem: compatibility for older, outdated websites and applications, emphasizes Sean Lyndersay.
