Microsoft has just announced that it will soon cease support for the nostalgic Internet Explorer, hoping to phase out the program by 2021.

According to the announcement, support for the browser will end on November 30 this year for the Microsoft Teams web app, while remaining support for its online services such as Office 365, OneDrive, and Outlook will end on August 17, 2021. The new Internet Explorer legacy mode within the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge will still be available for a while, although the company is strongly urging users to migrate over to the full version of Edge. At the same time, to facilitate this, Microsoft will also be ending the legacy version of Edge on March 9, 2021.

“Customers have been using IE 11 since 2013 when the online environment was much less sophisticated than the landscape today,” says Microsoft. “Since then, open web standards and newer browsers—like the new Microsoft Edge—have enabled better, more innovative online experiences. We believe that Microsoft 365 subscribers, in both consumer and commercial contexts, will be well served with this change through faster and more responsive web access to greater sets of features in everyday toolsets like Outlook, Teams, SharePoint, and more.”

Elsewhere in the tech world, a rumored Apple iPhone 12 release schedule has surfaced.
