RIP Internet Explorer

Microsoft after decades of service has finally decided to shutter Internet Explorer, marking a sad day for the Internet. Microsoft may have dominated the internet in an interesting historical comedy. Windows, on the other hand, was threatened by the web, which allowed cloud computing. Rather, Microsoft slowed down Internet Explorer. As a result, Google created Chrome.

Microsoft Confirms The News

Internet Explorer

The tech giant has confirmed the end of support for Internet Explorer via a statement and said that users may immediately shift to the Edge browser for an improved browsing session. To put it simply, Microsoft Edge is a better browser compared to the former since it’s quicker and more private as well as more up-to-date and contemporary. Despite the company’s success in establishing the contemporary Microsoft Edge browser, it does not yet command a major proportion of the computer browser industry. As per W3 Counter, Chrome will be enjoying the title of the most successful and frequently employed browser this year. A decade ago, IE was said to command almost 94 percent of the arena currently the duo altogether makes up only 3.8% of the worldwide arena.

The market share of Chrome sits with all its vanity at a staggering 71.6%. Chrome’s success is due to the fact that it comes pre-installed across all Android handsets, and users seldom switch to another browser after installing Chrome. Minimalistic and easy to use, it includes a wide range of options. With a customer base of around 15.2 percent, its Apple alternative is also able to hold its own  In spite of this, IE would continue to be available via Microsoft’s Edge browser. Internet Explorer mode is accessible, but it requires some digging around in the options to find since it isn’t readily evident. To be on the safe side and make use of the most up-to-date capabilities, Microsoft advises that you use a contemporary browser.

But Why?

Why would the tech giant want to hurt its own dominant internet browser? Simple: Instead of relying on Windows PCs, individuals would utilize fast browsers to execute their applications. Apple computers and web-only laptops might be used in the same way. Because Windows was the source of Microsoft’s revenue, the company vowed to protect it at all means. A lack of full-time employees allowed other browsers to take advantage of the void and drive the web forward in their own unique ways. Mozilla set the pace. However, Google’s software, such as Docs, Sheets, and Gmail, relied on fast internet to function. In the end, Firefox wasn’t enough. It made the decision to create Chrome.

“Chrome” is a sarcastic homage to all the additional things on the browser, which Google’s browser didn’t possess, that Chrome has. Priority was given to speed over features. Fortunately, everything went according to plan. Because of the rise of cloud computing, Microsoft’s “Lost Decade” was brought about. Since then, Microsoft has spent extensively on cloud computing, which has resulted in Azure. Who was in charge of the project? One of Microsoft’s senior managers, Satya Nadella. Who was in charge of the Chrome project at the former? Sundar Pichai, a senior product supervisor at the company.
