Internet Explorer is Finally Retired after 27 Years
Microsoft retires Internet Explorer...
The browser we all hated has finally taken a step down and retired as Microsoft ends support for Internet Explorer after chugging along for 27 years. In its place now sites Microsoft Edge.
"Not only is Microsoft Edge a faster, more secure, and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it is also able to address a key concern: compatibility for older, legacy websites and applications."
Microsoft said in a blog post.
At one point surprisingly, Internet Explorer was the most popular web browser and had nearly used by 95% of the market in 2003. This eventually and obviously dropped off as Google Chrome and Edge came about and became the prominent figures.
Microsoft Edge currently holds around 0.5% of the market.
