Microsoft apps to stop support for Internet Explorer from next year.

Internet Explorer is one of the oldest browsers ever and has been a part of Microsoft Windows. However, with the introduction and evolution of browsers such as Mozilla, Google Chrome, Opera, and others, Internet explorer lost its appeal as it was a lot slower and less efficient than other browsers. Due to the same reason, Microsoft launched a replacement for the same five years ago, which is known as Microsoft Edge.

Now Microsoft has decided that the 365 apps and services will no longer support Internet Explorer from August 17 next year. Microsoft is asking the users to download the Chromium-based Edge browser instead of Internet Explorer which will support all the latest apps and will have Microsoft Support. Microsoft has also revealed that from November 30 this year, Microsoft Teams web app will no longer support IE 11 as well.

After this, the customer will have to upgrade to the new browser. IE 11 was launched in 2013 and has been used by many users ever since. Microsoft does not seem to be interested in a new version of IE anymore and will focus more on Microsoft Edge. Microsoft Edge can meet the new standards of the browser industry much better than IE and provide a better and engaging online experience.

Microsoft did mention that it might be difficult for some customers to move from IE, however, the experience that they will get through the Microsoft 365 on new Microsft Edge will be much better and easier for them. Microsoft has also announced that they would end the support for the Microsoft Edge Legacy desktop app on March 9, 2021. However, the apps and sites created using the same will continue to work as usual and even incompatibility with the new Microsft Edge. The Microsoft team will keep providing support for that.
