Microsoft is pulling the plug on its legacy browser, Internet Explorer, after 27 years on Wednesday.

The decision to fully move away from the web browser comes seven years after the launch of Microsoft Edge, which was launched alongside the Windows 10 operating system in 2015.

Microsoft, for the past seven years, maintained support for the most recent version of the browser, Internet Explorer 11, despite most users moving on to other browsers. Less than 1% of users still regularly use Internet Explorer, according to Statcounter.

Ending support for Internet Explorer 11 means that regular security and glitch fixes will no longer be rolled out. The security and compatibility of the browser seem to be a principal concern for Microsoft.
