14.06.2022 00:17:17 - dpa-AFX: Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser to be retired after 27 years

REDMOND (dpa-AFX) - Microsoft is retiring its Internet Explorer web
browser after 27 years.

Microsoft will be ending support for most versions of its Internet
Explorer 11 browser on June 15 after announcing over a year ago that
it would be removed from most versions of Windows 10 this year.

Internet Explorer was first released in 1995 as part of the add-on
package for the Windows 95 operating system.

But with later versions, the browser was available as a free download
or in service packs, and included in the original equipment
manufacturer service releases of Windows 95 and later versions of
Windows.

Microsoft discontinued new feature development of the browser in 2016
in favor of its new browser Microsoft Edge.

Since Internet Explorer is a Windows component and is included in
long-term lifecycle versions of Windows such as Windows Server 2019,
it will continue to receive security updates until at least 2029.

Internet Explorer was once the most widely used web browser,
attaining a peak of about 95% usage share by 2003.

However, its usage share has since declined with the launch of
Firefox (2004) and Google Chrome (2008), and with the growing
popularity of mobile operating systems such as Android and iOS that
do not support Internet Explorer.
