Microsoft Announced the Date of Definitive Death of Internet Explorer

Microsoft is going to end support for Internet Explorer on Windows 10 devices. We will say goodbye to the browser next year.

For some time now, Microsoft has been slowly pulling back from supporting Internet Explorer as part of its services. Today, the company announced that on June 15, 2022 it will finally end the life of this age-old browser on Windows 10. It was previously announced that the app will stopped being supported by Microsoft 365 before August 17, 2021.

The company by no means talks about this move as a complete 'death' of the old program. This is because - according to Microsoft - it has a 'future' within its younger cousin - Microsoft Edge. The newer browser received the so-called IE mode, so we can also use it with older websites and applications based on Internet Explorer (and there's quite a few of them due to Microsoft's old, not too praiseworthy policy). It's the prevalence of these that kept IE alive, even though the browser has long lagged behind the competition (not to mention its successor).

Passionate about video (and other) games for years, he completed an Mba in linguistics, defending a thesis about games. He began his adventure with Gamepressure in 2015, writing in the newsroom, later also covering film and – oh, horror! – technology (also contributor to the gaming encyclopedia). He started with platformers, which he still dearly loves (including metroidvania), but he's also interested in card games (including 'analog'), brawlers, soulslike games and basically every other type of game. Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
