Microsoft wants you to stop using Internet Explorer

Microsoft Drag Internet Explorer to the Trash. No ReallyMore

Jackson urges users that it's time to stop using its old web browser, a product Microsoft officially discontinued in 2015.

The blog post is titled "The perils of using Internet Explorer as your default browser", and goes on to detail how using this dated web browser creates what's known as "technical debt" within businesses.

"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", Mr. Jackson said.

Next year's medals will be made in part from metal recycled from cellphones and small electronic devices. Inside most smartphones , there are precious metal materials, including gold, silver, and bronze.


Washington D.C, February 9: We all dread using Internet Explorer, but some businesses and organisations still use the good old browser because they can't help it. They don't use Internet Explorer for the same, anymore. If you happen to be one of the few users that are still cruising about the Internet on Internet Explorer it is highly recommended that you upgrade to a more modern browser such as Edge, Chrome or FireFox.

Responding to some comments, Mr. Jackson said, "We want you to use the Internet Explorer the sites that need it - what I'm trying to say here is that I hope you don't use it for everything else".

Whilst acknowledging that pre-Nadella Microsoft didn't exactly help matters with its conduct, which led in part to the so-called "Browser Ballot" in the European Union, things have changed and it really is time to start thinking about browsers in a more constructive way.

Google Chrome overtook Internet Explorer as the world's most popular web browser in 2016.

He added that it's generally OK for people to use Internet Explorer in an enterprise environment, but they would better protect themselves if they switch to a newer browser. "As the company is developing and testing of the modern web browser", as told by Chris Jackson.

The reason why some companies are sticking to Internet Explorer is because it supports legacy web apps. Looking all the way back to Internet Explorer 6, the very concept of "standards mode" vs "quirks mode" comes from this "easy button" approach.
