All Micosoft online services like Office 365, OneDrive, and Outlook will no longer work on IE. The Microsoft Team tool also dropped Internet Explorer later this year. Windows versions of the operating system also completely remove the browser.
This means that one of the most famous and familiar web browsers in the history of the Internet will be gone after 25 years of existence. The final version of the product is Internet Explorer 11.
Edge replaces IE.
The death of Internet Explorer was heralded, because its market share is now 1.28%, a record low compared to the peak period in the past. This browser used to reach 95% market share in the early 2000s. Micosoft also thinks that Internet Explorer is no longer suitable for today's diverse Internet environment. Version 11 has been around since 2013.
The alternative browser for Internet Explorer is Edge with the open source standard, using the Chromium kernel like Google Chrome. The product offers a better online experience and is more relevant than the modern web environment.
Internet Explorer was born in August 1995 with Microsoft Plus! for Windows 95 and the OEM release of Windows 95. The Internet Explorer team started with 6 people. The alternative browser for IE is Edge, which was first released by Microsoft in 2015.
