Microsoft shuts down Internet Explorer permanently
the giant US software empire “Microsoft” announced that it has permanently disabled the “Internet Explorer 11” program, which at one time dominated Internet browsing in the world, adding that this step aims to improve user interaction with the Internet and transfer institutions to its new browser, “Edge”.

Microsoft said in a statement: “With the increasing number of websites that do not support Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge allows faster, more secure and more modern browsing of the Internet, while it can also open websites that still depend on Internet Explorer when needed.”
According to “Microsoft”, since last Tuesday it was decided to redirect devices that have not already moved to “Microsoft Edge”, from “Internet Explorer 11” to “Edge”.
