Internet Explorer to retire in June next year.
Redmond / Washington: Microsoft has announced the permanent retirement of the world’s most popular Internet browser, Internet Explorer.
The company announced that the Internet Explorer 11 desktop app would be retired on June 15, 2022. This is the version of Internet Explorer that is available in Windows 10.
The move will not affect Windows 10’s long-term servicing channel, which has long been used in MRI machines and air traffic control systems.
Retirement will also affect Internet Explorer 11 desktop apps or other servers. Microsoft had hinted at shutting down the browser four years ago in 2016, advising users to get rid of Internet Explorer.
The company had stopped supporting the old version of Internet Explorer since 2016 but kept the new version of the web browser introduced in 2013.
