Microsoft's internet explorer retires after 27 years of service

In May last year, Microsoft announced that Internet Explorer will become inoperable from June 15, 2022 on certain versions of Windows 10. Requested ustomers to switch to Microsoft Edge.

Now, as of June 15, the IE desktop app will be disabled, and users will be redirected to Microsoft Edge.

Internet Explorer was released in 1995 for Windows 95. Later, the company began providing the browser for free as part of the package. In 2003, the browser reached a peak of 95 per cent usage, but it was unable to maintain its position.

Many competitors entered the browser market and began offering better user interfaces, faster internet speeds, and smoother performance. It appears that Internet Explorer was unable to keep up with the competition.

Microsoft stopped new browser feature development in 2016, and this might be the first time the company  has decided to phase out Internet Explorer.
