Microsoft's Internet Explorer was the browser that so many of us first used to explore the Web. Anyone who used a computer during the '90s or early 2000s probably ended up with an early version of Internet Explorer on his or her PC.
But serious bugs and security flaws have made Internet Explorer a much less appealing option for just about anyone who likes to stay safe while they browse online. The browser's market share has dipped to about 11%, with Chrome leading the browser pack at around 43%.
Well, Microsoft finally pulled the plug. The blue E that's been on the desktop of every Windows machine for years is going away. It will not be included in the majority of new Windows 10 versions.
We hardly knew ye, Internet Explorer. If your computer just doesn't feel complete without the Internet Explorer icon on your taskbar, then you need to consider your alternatives.
