Microsoft shuts down Internet Explorer after nearly 30 years

The tech giant officially retired Internet Explorer on Wednesday after 27 years – fans have paid their respect to the once-popular web browser. The company announced plans to end support for Internet Explorer last year, citing a focus on its newer web browser, Microsoft Edge — though it noted Edge will still include “Internet Explorer mode,” allowing users to access “legacy Internet Explorer-based websites and applications.” But in the next few months, users who open Internet Explorer will be redirected to Edge.

Internet Explorer managed to survive until you got better and faster web browsers in the market, and now with the likes of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari around, IE just couldn’t compete with the latest avatar of web browser in the market.

Fair to say that Internet Explorer shutting down is not going to bring tears in people’s eyes.
