By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Microsoft is putting the final nail in the coffin of Internet Explorer, revealing that the legacy web browser will retire for good in summer next year.
The tech giant has gradually shifted away from the aging software after some 25 years on the scene, starting afresh with the new Edge browser in 2015 to coincide with the launch of Windows 10.
Support for the final version, Internet Explorer 11, has been maintained, even though most people have already moved elsewhere.
By ending support, this means important security updates and bug fixes will no longer be rolled out.
The web browser will be officially retired on June 15 2022, Microsoft said.
