Microsoft will finally phase out Internet Explorer in 2022

Microsoft will finally abandon Internet Explorer in the summer of 2022, replacing it with the Microsoft Edge browser on new versions of Windows, although it previously promised to support the browser until 2029. This was reported in the official blog of the operating system.

“The Internet Explorer 11 app will be discontinued and will not be supported starting June 15, 2022 for certain versions of Windows 10,” it said. They clarified that the Internet Explorer mode (“IE mode”) is already built into the Microsoft Edge browser, with which it will be possible to access legacy websites and applications based on it.

“The future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge,” the company concluded.

Microsoft is phasing out the outdated browser. Since the end of 2020, it has stopped working with Microsoft Teams, and since August 17, 2021, Internet Explorer will not connect to Office 365, OneDrive, Outlook, and others. Its replacement, Microsoft Edge, was introduced in 2015. At the same time, Microsoft had previously promised to support IE until at least 2029.
