  • How to Uninstall Internet Explorer

Microsoft's own security chief has warned millions of people who continue to use Internet Explorer as a default web browser are placing themselves in "peril". Jackson laid out a scenario in which a company, choosing the easiest possible route since Internet Explorer 6, goes to make a webpage today and ends up using a 1999 implementation of web standards by default.

Jackson explains that Internet Explorer should only be used for internal sites that won't run on any other browser (pointing out that however it seems, he's not actually flying the flag for Edge, specifically, because of course he isn't) and a few legacy websites, mostly enterprise related.

"We're not supporting new Web standards for it and, while many sites work fine, developers by and large just aren't testing for Internet Explorer these days", Jackson said.

The Redmond, Washington-based technology giant put an end to the Internet Explorer brand almost four years ago when it introduced Microsoft Edge as its modern browser in Windows 10.

Jackson said that developers now no longer test on the legacy Web browser, but instead use "modern browsers".

Last week, Microsoft said support for Internet Explorer 10 will end on 31 January 2020, leaving Internet Explorer 11 as the final version of the software that will receive security updates.

'.As new apps are coming out with greater frequency, what we want to help you do is avoid having to miss out on a progressively larger portion of the web, ' he added.

Internet Explorer, which was first called Windows Internet Explorer, was first released as part of the add-on package Plus! for Windows 95 in 1995. It should be noted that Microsoft don't even support Internet Explorer anymore, since the company announced back in 2016 that they will be killing support for Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9 and Internet Explorer 10.
