Internet Explorer Confirmed Closed Starting This Year
Although we don’t really rely on it, Internet Explorer is a very helpful browser application for Windows users, especially when installing an operating system for the first time.
However, because it was quite behind with unsatisfactory use of technology, Microsoft finally decided to stop supporting this application which is often called IE. This year the software giant has also begun to gradually end its support for online services such as Microsoft 365 for example.
It was stated that Microsoft will end support for IE on August 17, 2021. With the removal of browser support in Microsoft 365 services, Outlook, OneDrive, or Office 365 users can no longer use the Internet Explorer browser on these online services.
Not only that, but Microsoft has also started to stop supporting Internet Explorer on the Teams collaboration platform, where the deadline has been accelerated so that it is now November 30, 2020 at the very end.
However, for those of you who use the Windows 10 operating system and take advantage of applications such as Office 365 or others from Microsoft with browser support to maximize functionality. No need to worry, because the latest version of W.10 is no longer using IE as a browser application.
Microsoft has replaced it with Microsoft Edge which is claimed to have better performance and search capabilities than the previous generation. This app keeps getting updated gradually to provide the best user experience.
Several updates will be rolled out along with the Windows 10 operating system updates, and you can check them in settings >> update. When you are not really using a laptop / computer , it is recommended to check this update to get more optimal performance from the OS and a series of supporting applications offered by Microsoft.
Microsoft has always paid attention to user security, where it’s not only Internet Explorer that has been terminated, but older versions of Edge that haven’t used the Chromium engine have also been discontinued. However, this has no taste, because when it was stopped the user was already on a newer version.
