Microsoft Is Retiring Internet Explorer in 2022

After more than 25 years, Microsoft‘s Internet Explorer is coming to an end.

The pioneering web browser, which steadily grew out of favor among consumers over the years, will be retired in place of Microsoft Edge on June 15, 2022, the company announced on Wednesday (May 19).

“We are announcing that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge. The Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will be retired and go out of support on June 15, 2022, for certain versions of Windows 10,” the company’s Sean Lyndersay said in a statement.

All consumer versions will end support of the browser, while the Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) of Windows 10 will still include Internet Explorer in 2022, and it will likely stop being bundled in Windows either in June 2022 or soon after, via The Verge.

Support for the aging browser ended for the Microsoft Teams app in 2020. In addition, Internet Explorer 11 will no longer be supported for Microsoft’s online services like Office 365, OneDrive, Outlook, and more on August 17.

Microsoft Edge first appeared in 2015, and the company has been encouraging businesses to stop using the browser in favor of Edge ever since.

There’s also some news out about Bill Gates, who reportedly stepped down from the company’s board amid scandal.
