Microsoft Ends Support for Internet Explorer 11


The last major release of IE ends its run on June 15.

Microsoft is officially stopping its support for the Internet Explorer browser Version 11, the last major update of Internet Explorer (IE). According to an announcement made over a year ago, June 15, 2022 will be the last day of Internet Explorer support.

This milestone is certainly the end of an era. Internet Explorer was one of the highest profile applications in the Microsoft portfolio, and it was the subject of the massive browser war lawsuit in 2001 that nearly broke up the company.

Redmond encourages all users to move to their new go-to browser Microsoft Edge. Internet Explorer will live on through Edge’s IE mode, which will imitate Internet Explorer for legacy websites that depend on IE functionality.

Replacing unsupported software is always a good idea, but given the vulnerability of a web browser to hostile actions on the hostile Internet, it is especially important to make sure deprecated IE instances are offline by the June 15 end-of-support date.
