Microsoft announced on its blog that Internet Explorer has been discontinued

Microsoft has stopped supporting Internet Explorer 11 (the latest version of Internet Explorer).

The decision to suspend basic support was made by the IT giant on May 19 this year.

It is said that this measure will not affect some versions of the Windows operating system. In particular, the browser will continue to work for the Windows 10 LTSC version.

Microsoft has described its decision to use Internet Explorer as "outdated". The main functions of the browser were transferred to Microsoft Edge, which was launched in 2015. In particular, this browser supports old or modern websites and applications.

"Because Microsoft Edge is able to perform these and other functions, Internet Explorer 11 will be sent on holiday, and support for it will end on June 1, 2022," the IT company said in a statement.

Clients, especially Internet Explorer users, are advised to use the old browser at Microsoft via the compatibility mode installed in Microsoft Edge. This feature will be supported until at least 2029. However, the company says it will notify users a year before support for this option is discontinued.
