Microsoft wants you to stop using Internet Explorer as a browser

Microsoft wants you to stop using Internet Explorer as a browser

Microsoft replaced Internet Explorer with Edge long ago but users continue to favour Internet Explorer especially when it comes to businesses and government organisations.

It baffles me why people are still using Microsoft's ancient Internet Explorer, and now even Microsoft themselves have kindly asked Explorers users to upgrade and let the browser die.

In other words "please use Edge, please, please, please?"

In his post, Jackson explains how Microsoft customers still ask him Internet Explorer related questions for their business.

"We're not supporting new web standards for it and, while many sites work fine, developers by and large just aren't testing for Internet Explorer these days", Jackson wrote.

Microsoft says it understands Internet Explorer remains a valuable tool for enterprises, but emphasizes that sooner or later apps still need to be updated because the rest of the world is migrating to modern browsers anyway.




Wait... hang on... so it IS a browser then?

In a post called "The perils of using Internet Explorer as your default browser", Microsoft's Chris Jackson said everyone should stop using Internet Explorer.

Whilst acknowledging that pre-Nadella Microsoft didn't exactly help matters with its conduct, which led in part to the so-called "Browser Ballot" in the European Union, things have changed and it really is time to start thinking about browsers in a more constructive way. He even stripped the longtime browser of its status and instead referred to it as a "compatibility solution". That's not a browser.

The Verge that Microsoft helped exacerbate the problem by coupling its current web browser, Edge, with Windows 10, limiting its ability to be used on older versions of Windows. Consequently, if we continued our previous method, you would end up in a scenario where, by making the best or most effective use of the things you have, you will end up like that you are not capable to use new apps as they come out.

Unfortunately, legacy web apps likely won't go anywhere anytime soon, which means Internet Explorer won't go away either.
