The good old browser will soon be sanctioned by Microsoft, its owner.
Microsoft is driving a new nail into the coffin of Internet Explorer 11. The web browser will soon refuse to open 1156 sites, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Microsoft Teams. Explanations.
Internet Explorer is a vestige of the past that Microsoft has been trying to get rid of since 2015. Its replacement Edge focuses all the efforts of the American publisher. Its latest versions are based on Chromium, the core of Google Chrome.
Despite Microsoft’s efforts, Edge does not break through enough, Internet Explorer refuses to die. Here is the market share of web browsers in Belgium in September 2020 (source):
– Chrome 59,71%
– Safari 13,58%
– Firefox 10,1%
– Edge 9,34%
– Internet Explorer 3,47%
Google Chrome largely dominates the debates, ahead of Safari, the browser for Apple computers, and Firefox, from the Mozilla Foundation.
Lagging behind in fourth position, Edge will soon receive another boost from its owner.
During the week of November 19, 2020, Microsoft will inject our Windows PCs with update 87 of the Edge browser. After this update, 1156 sites will no longer be viewable on Internet Explorer. You will automatically be directed to Edge.
Example: As soon as you try to open YouTube in Internet Explorer, the site will open without your consent on Edge.
This is a rather muscular method of forcing your hand. Microsoft believes that Internet Explorer is based on outdated technologies that no longer guarantee the comfort and safety of navigation.
