Microsoft Edge is here to stay

Since most people prefer using Google's Chrome and Apple's Safari, Microsoft will no longer be supporting Internet Explorer by June 15, 2022.

We are announcing that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge, the company said in a blog post Wednesday, referring to its other browser.

Not only is Microsoft Edge a faster, more secure and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it is also able to address a key concern: compatibility for older, legacy websites and applications, Microsoft added.

According to Microsoft, Internet Explorer-based websites and applications will work with Edge at least until 2029, because many organizations have websites based on the now-doomed browser.

Chrome, Google's browser, controls 65 percent of the market, said Statscounter. Meanwhile, Apple's Safari, which is only available on Apple computers and devices, is second with nearly a 19 percent market share as of April of this year.

Firefox and Edge are in third and fourth place with 3.59 percent and 3.39 percent, respectively.

To recap, Microsoft launched the Chromium-based Edge browser last year as a replacement for the Internet Explorer. It is faster, more feature-rich, and more secured than Microsoft's retiring browser.
