Microsoft to Phase Out Windows Internet Explorer by 2021

Say goodbye to the early internet browser of choice.

Microsoft has announced that it will end support for Internet Explorer, the browser of choice in the late ’90s and early ’00s, across all Microsoft 365 services by August 17, 2021.

Back in 2015, Microsoft introduced Microsoft Edge as an early step towards phasing out the platform. Though Edge features an Internet Explorer legacy mode — which will disappear on March 9, 2021 — the tech company previously encouraged customers to stop using the outdated browser entirely.

“Customers have been using [Internet Explorer 11] since 2013 when the online environment was much less sophisticated than the landscape today,” Microsoft said. “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.”
