Microsoft is killing off Internet Explorer

IE.jpgWith the deployment of Windows 10 and the launch of the new Microsoft Edge browser last summer, the fact that Internet Explorer is going away is not new news. By choice, I primarily use Google Chrome both at home and work, but am forced to use IE on some occasions, depending on the site or page I need to access and work with.

Since upgrading to Windows 10 last fall on my personal laptop, I have been making it a point to try out and use Microsoft Edge more in preparation for the IE end, and so far I like what I see. I like some of the new features that have been added to the Microsoft browser, and the look and feel is definitely more updated.

Needless to say, I can’t help but feel a little warm and fuzzy inside when I read that as of January 12, Microsoft no longer supports IE 8, 9, or 10, because it’s just a few steps closer to putting that pain behind us.
