As per reports, Microsoft (MSFT) has finally discontinued its Internet Explorer, as the company announced its users to move on from the 27-year-old application and use its newer Edge browser instead.
Microsoft released the first version of Internet Explorer in 1995 when web surfing was dominated by the first widely popular browser, Netscape Navigator. IE’s launch signaled the beginning of the end of Navigator. The company tied its IE and its ubiquitous Windows operating system together so tightly that many users simply used it by default instead of Navigator. People complained IE was slow, prone to crashing, and vulnerable to hacks.
According to internet analytics company Statcounter, the Chrome browser compiles with roughly a 65% share of the worldwide browser market, followed by Apple’s Safari with 19%. IE’s heir, Edge, lags with about 4%, just ahead of Firefox.
