Microsoft Internet Explorer browser
Microsoft will end support for Internet Explorer 11 in all its applications and services next year, on August 17, 2021. The Internet Explorer 11 browser will no longer support Microsoft online services such as Office 365, OneDrive, Outlook and more. Later this year, on November 30, Microsoft will also end Internet Explorer 11 support with Microsoft’s Business Video Call Service.

Microsoft hopes that its new browser, Microsoft Edge, based on the Chromium engine, is the future successor to Internet Explorer and is a worthy candidate to fight the popular Google Chrome browser. The company will continue to allow businesses to access old sites built specifically for Internet Explorer until it completely stops supporting Internet Explorer 11.

Microsoft has been working for years to disable the use and support of Internet Explorer. The company first unveiled its Edge browser back in 2015.

Along with the support changes, Microsoft also plans to remove its support for the initial version of the Edge browser on March 9, 2021. After the support date expires, the previous generation Edge version will no longer receive security updates and the company will focus on the latest Chromium engine based Edge browser.
