Microsoft cybersecurity expert: Please, stop using Internet Explorer as a web browser

Microsoft cybersecurity expert: Please, stop using Internet Explorer as a web browser

But with Microsoft Edge also soon to be migrated to Chromium, Microsoft is now trying to convince all of its users, be they consumers or enterprises, to just give up on Internet Explorer, explaining in a post called "The perils of using Internet Explorer as your default browser" that this app is there just for compatibility reasons.

It's no secret that Microsoft isn't the biggest fan of the old Internet Explorer browser but since they introduced Microsoft Edge years ago they have been saying that they would not be supporting Internet Explorer.

In a new blog post, Jackson said that, for some organizations, using Internet Explorer as the default for all situations "is the 'easy button, ' because, well, most of your sites were designed for Internet Explorer, so...just...always use it, ok?"

"We're not supporting new web standards for it and, while many sites work fine, developers by and large just aren't testing for Internet Explorer these days", Jackson wrote. Microsoft Worldwide Lead for Application Compatibility Chris Jackson said this week that IE isn't really a browser but a "compatibility solution" to deal with legacy sites.

Microsoft wants users to stop surfing the web on Internet Explorer.

Unfortunately, Internet Explorer isn't equipped to handle the modern web.

The Redmond, Washington-based technology giant put an end to the Internet Explorer brand almost four years ago when it introduced Microsoft Edge as its modern browser in Windows 10. However, to be fair to Jackson, he never pushes for any specific web browser to replace Internet Explorer.

Many users have moved to browsers like Google Chrome, Firefox or Microsoft's latest browser, Edge. "More effort on the part of IT teams was required to get to standards mode, which made "getting modern" an opt-in choice". It should be noted that Microsoft don't even support Internet Explorer anymore, since the company announced back in 2016 that they will be killing support for Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9 and Internet Explorer 10.
