Internet Explorer is finally set to retire on June 15, and it’s understandable that Twitter has been feeling some nostalgia. Almost no one has used the search engine at any time recently, and it’s notorious for butt many jokes about its slowness. However, many of our first online memories are related to it, when Internet Explorer was the only option available. Internet Explorer, or IE, will be shutting down, and will be out of support tomorrow for certain versions of Windows 10.
Microsoft indicated last year that the new Edge browser, the successor to IE, has a compatibility mode for legacy websites and apps that will still require basic Internet Explorer functionality to work.

“Microsoft Edge is not only a faster, more secure, and modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it is also able to address a major concern: compatibility with outdated and outdated websites and applications. Microsoft Edge has Internet Explorer mode (“IE Mode”) built in, so you can Access legacy Internet Explorer-based websites and apps directly from Microsoft Edge,” said Shaun Lindersey, Partner Group Program Manager, Microsoft Edge at Microsoft.
