Tech giant Microsoft will finally end support for Internet Explorer on multiple Windows versions on Wednesday, June 15, almost 27 years after its launch on August 24, 1995.

It will be replaced with the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge, with users automatically redirected to Edge when launching IE11.

Internet Explorer is also not available on Windows 11, where the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge is the default web browser.

“The Internet Explorer (IE) 11 desktop application will end support for Windows 10 semi-annual channel starting June 15, 2022,” Microsoft says on the IE11 lifecycle page.

As Microsoft further explains, “for supported operating systems, Internet Explorer 11 will continue receiving security updates and technical support for the lifecycle of the Windows version on which it is installed.”
