Microsoft retires Internet Explorer browser after 26 years

...........................................

"Microsoft stopped supporting the Internet Explorer web browser on Wednesday,"

...........................................

"indicating the end is near for a 26-year-old brand with baggage that includes an antitrust case, security flaws and lagging performance."

"Users will instead be pointed to Microsoft’s newer Edge browser."

...........................................

"While Microsoft doesn’t derive revenue directly from browsers, Edge defaults to the company’s Bing search engine,"

"through which the software and hardware maker generates advertising revenue."

..................................

"That category represents about 6% of Microsoft’s total revenue, at nearly $3 billion in the first quarter."

"For the next several months, users who click the IE icon will be redirected to Microsoft Edge, the company's newer answer to web browsing, in "IE mode"."

"IE mode allows users to access older, Internet Explorer-based websites and applications from Edge."

"Eventually, Microsoft plans on releasing a Windows Update that will remove all IE icons from devices."
