The developer named the exact date – June 15, 2022
Several years ago, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser was one of the main ones in terms of market share, which was facilitated by the integration into Windows. However, its development was discontinued, and technology continued to progress, so that the browser gradually became more and more inferior to the alternatives in terms of performance and security. The latest version of Internet Explorer is version 11 – and even with the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge, it is still in use if the PC is running Windows. The fact is that many applications rely on the presence of Internet Explorer for their work. The absence of a browser will lead to errors and disruption of normal performance.
