The news of the Internet Explorer has gone viral and netizens have come forward say goodbye to the aging browser with interesting memes that are both funny and sad in equal measure
Microsoft announced the retirement of its oldest browser, Internet Explorer after 27 years of service. Microsoft has said that it will end mainstream support for the aging browser and it will finally retire in peace. First released in 1995 as an add-on package for Windows 95, the browser was provided for free as part of the package by Microsoft. As per the company notification, Internet Explorer will be rendered inoperable from June 15, 2022.
From Internet Explorer to Microsoft Edge:
For those still using the Internet Explorer at home, the company has recommended transitioning to Microsoft Edge before June 15, 2022, “to start enjoying a faster, more secure and more modern browsing experience."
“The good news: you probably already have it on your device. Search for “Microsoft Edge" using the Windows 10 search box or look for the icon (see the top of this article). If you don’t have it, you can easily download it here. We’ve also aimed to make the upgrade to Microsoft Edge simple," the company shared.
“Once you’ve opted in to moving to Microsoft Edge, it’s easy to bring over your passwords, favorites and other browsing data from Internet Explorer in a few clicks. And if you run into a site that needs Internet Explorer to open, Microsoft Edge has Internet Explorer mode built-in so you can still access it," it added.
