This week we said goodbye to an old friend as Internet Explorer retired on June 15, 2022. While a vast majority of Internet users have already moved on to more modern browsers like Edge, Chrome and Firefox, many of us got our first tastes of the world wide web through Internet Explorer (IE). And even though IE ended up being the butt of countless memes, we will have fond memories of its glory days.

Microsoft launched IE in 1995. Nearly 27 years and billions of page views later, Microsoft is officially ending support for the classic browser. Users attempting to open Internet Explorer will now be automatically redirected to Microsoft Edge. Users will be guided to import their browser data, such as bookmarks, passwords and settings, to ease the transition to Edge.

Microsoft will start redirecting IE users to Edge.

For older websites and web applications that only work with Internet Explorer, users will be able to enable IE Mode in Edge. This will allow Edge users to reload websites in IE Mode at the click of a toolbar button. Chrome and Firefox users can install extensions to enable an Internet Explorer compatibility view. However, these extensions are built by third-party developers and should only be used with extreme caution.
