RIP Internet Explorer (August 24, 1995-Febraury 14, 2023)

Microsoft Corporation 252,75 +4,94 +1,99% will be putting the final nail in Internet Explorer’s coffin this coming February via a Microsoft Edge (NOT a Windows) update. This will disable Internet Explorer 11 desktop browser on most Windows 10 devices. IE11 was the final version of Internet Explorer initially released with Windows 8.1 in October 2013 and Windows 7 in November 2013. Microsoft introduced their Chromium based browser Microsoft Edge in April 2015 with Windows 10 and Xbox One.

“The out-of-support Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) desktop application is scheduled to be permanently disabled on certain versions of Windows 10 devices on February 14, 2023, through a Microsoft Edge update, not a Windows update as previously communicated,” Redmond said on Friday.

“All remaining devices that have not already been redirected from IE11 to Microsoft Edge are scheduled to be redirected with the Microsoft Edge update scheduled for February 14, 2023.”
