Adieu Internet Explorer- Tribute To The Revolutionary Ancestor Of Browsers
Microsoft has decided to retire the once most widely used web browser, INTERNET EXPLORER. It’s been a good long 27 years of service with ups and downs. On August 16, 1995, the first version of Internet Explorer was published. The browser was based on Mosaic software, which Microsoft licensed from Spyglass Inc. Likewise, other firms were anxious to get into the burgeoning sector of browser development. From June 15, 2022, Internet Explorer will be rendered unusable. However, as per the company’s release, Internet Explorer mode (“IE mode”) is incorporated into Microsoft Edge, allowing us to access legacy Internet Explorer-based websites and applications directly from Microsoft Edge.
There has been a mixed amount of overwhelming responses from netizens. For instance, Twitter was filled with memes and nostalgic comments.
Some of the the valid reasons include :
Streamlined Yield :
It can be aggravating to have to use various browsers for different jobs. Although you may prefer to use a newer browser, a public website or internal work programme may require Internet Explorer. This is where the Microsoft Edge browser comes in. Your productivity will be streamlined thanks to its dual engine advantage. You can now use Microsoft Edge for all your needs.
Microsoft Edge also includes innovative, cutting-edge capabilities that aren’t available in Internet Explorer. At times, we tend to keep lot of tabs open. To free up these resources, use sleeping tabs. Similarly, vertical tabs are used to read the tabs along the top of your browser. Using Collections, we can collect and organize the information we come across on the web. Are you a person that is keen on always maintaining a clean and segregated approach? Then Microsoft Edge is for you. You can use different profiles for all your work.
Better Browser Security :
You’ll need a browser that can protect you from password attacks. With Microsoft Defender SmartScreen, Microsoft Edge provides the best protection against phishing attempts and malware on Windows 10. It also has a feature called Password Monitor, which analyses the dark web for signs that your personal information has been hacked. Microsoft Edge is even better for businesses now that it’s integrated with the Microsoft 365 Security Suite: For businesses on Windows 10, Microsoft is more secure than Chrome.
In today’s changing security world, it’s also critical that Microsoft Edge responds more quickly to security flaws. It can deliver security patches for imminent vulnerabilities within days, if not hours. If you’ve been using Internet Explorer for years, Microsoft Edge can now be your go-to online browser thanks to increased compatibility and faster productivity.
Greater Compatibility :
You gain a dual engine advantage with Microsoft Edge, which supports both legacy and new websites. In reality, it’s the only browser that includes built-in support for legacy Internet Explorer-based websites and applications, including ActiveX controls. Microsoft Edge is also based on the Chromium project, which drives many of today’s browsers, thus it provides top-notch compatibility for modern websites. You get the best of the web, both old and upcoming, with the dual engine advantage.
Nonetheless, Internet Explorer had its unique features and interesting facts.
Other Microsoft products run well with Internet Explorer. In addition, we can save text from websites by importing them into Excel or OneNote, which creates an Excel sheet or a OneNote page automatically.
