Stop using Internet Explorer as a primary browser, Microsoft implores

How to Uninstall Internet Explorer Microsoft's security chief claims Internet Explorer isn't a web browser

Instead, Jackson is advising that users move to a more "modern browser" that is up to date with current web standards.

In 2015, Microsoft launched a successor to Internet Explorer known as Edge, although the web browser has struggled against Google Chrome.

Chris Jackson, a cybersecurity expert in Microsoft's Windows division, explained in a blog post that why people today should not use Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

We are not supporting new web standards for this, while many sites work excellent, large and developers are not experimenting and testing for Internet Explorer these days. Microsoft has made it clear that Internet Explorer is not a viable browser and the company doesn't want anything to do with it anymore.

But some businesses still rely on Internet Explorer to route their web traffic, which is something Jackson discourages in the post.

Two Southampton fans set to be banned after mocking Emiliano Sala death
A statement from the club said the behaviour would not be tolerated and that the two fans would likely be banned as a result. Southampton confirmed both fans had been spoken to by police and meant to take "an extremely firm stance" over the incident.

Still using Microsoft's Internet Explorer as your default browser?

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. In the United Kingdom for instance, 5.5% of consumers still have Internet Explorer as their main browser.

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.

Microsoft has recommended users to try and stay ahead of the curve and transition to new modern browser for not only compatibility improvements but also security reasons as well.

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.
