The day is finally here; starting today, Microsoft is permanently disabling Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10 PCs, and making it unavailable for older versions of Windows as well. The final plan to kill off the browser was announced in December, and now, it’s coming to fruition.
Most have probably lost count of how many times the death of Internet Explorer has been reported, and it’s because Microsoft has been dragging out the process for years. The end of support for Windows 11 was first announced in 2020, and in June 2022, Microsoft was supposed to kill off the browser in favor of Edge. What ended up happening, however, is that this date was only when Microsoft began to move users away from Internet Explorer and to Microsoft Edge, so not everyone was immediately affected.
