Why full-Chromium Edge means end times for IE
How much longer will Microsoft patch Internet Explorer?
That’s a question Windows users who still run the aged browser should ask themselves. The answer? Only Microsoft knows for sure. But there are signs that the Redmond, Wash. developer won’t support Internet Explorer (IE) as long as it’s promised.
The last (Internet) Explorer
Although IE has been demoted to legacy status – it’s been three years since Microsoft halted development of the browser – the firm pledged to deliver security updates through the lifetime of any operating system with which the browser was bundled. “Internet Explorer 11 is the last major version of Internet Explorer,” Microsoft stated. “Internet Explorer 11 will continue receiving security updates and technical support for the lifecycle of the version of Windows on which it is installed.”
