Finally, we say goodbye to Internet Explorer

After more than 27 years, the beloved and not-so-beloved for some Internet Explorer has finally disappearing from our desktops. To its credit, the most popular browser back then introduced many Windows users to the joys of the Internet for the first time. 

Still, even with many other browsers around such as Netscape Navigator and FireFox, Explorer remained the default choice for millions of people up until around 2002.

If Internet Explorer has been your trusty companion over the years and you’re looking for the next best thing or you’ve only used Internet Explorer to install Google Chrome, it’s time to introduce you to Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft’s Edge browser is using the same Chromium open-source code that Google Chrome has used since its inception. This is encouraging, but it remains to be seen how Edge will compete against Google Chrome and other browsers to win users’ confidence.
