Internet Explorer has joined the 27 Club. As of Wednesday (June 15), Microsoft will no longer support the once-dominant web browser that everyone loved to hate since 1995.
Per AP, Microsoft announced last year that it was putting an end to Internet Explorer today, pushing users to its Edge browser, which was launched in 2015.
“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,” said Sean Lyndersay, general manager of Microsoft Edge Enterprise.
Users marked Internet Explorer’s passing on Twitter, with many calling it the “top browser for installing other browsers.” One person in Korea even built a tombstone with the saying: “He was a good tool to download other browsers” inscribed.
