True to its word, Microsoft has phased out Internet Explorer on Wednesday, June 15.
In a blog post, Microsoft said Internet Explorer 11 is now incompatible with its products. But the company clarified that IE-based websites and applications will still work with Microsoft Edge.
"The web has evolved and so have browsers," Sean Lyndersay, General Manager of Microsoft Edge Enterprise, said in the blog post.
"Incremental improvements to Internet Explorer couldn't match the general improvements to the web at large, so we started fresh,” she added.
In an earlier blog post, Microsoft explained why they are prioritizing ME over IE.
“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,” it said.
The retirement affects all currently supported versions of Windows 10 Home, Pro, Enterprise, Edu and IoT.
IE debuted in 1995 as part of Windows 95. It was once the most-popular web browser.
