We've been reading for a while now announcements που αναφέρουν το τέλος υποστήριξης του Internet Explorer. Αυτό οφείλεται κυρίως στο ότι η Microsoft πραγματοποιεί τη διαδικασία απόσυρσης σε φάσεις. Στο επόμενο βήμα αυτής της κλιμακωτής προσέγγισης, η εταιρεία από το Redmond θα προωθήσει μια ενημέρωση για τον Edge που θα απενεργοποιήσει οριστικά τον Internet Explorer (IE) σε ορισμένες εκδόσεις των Windows 10.
Microsoft had already announced that it would release this update that would "kill" IE from November 2022. Initially the company had announced that this would be done through Windows Update, but eventually decided to do it through an Edge update.
This Microsoft Edge update will be released simultaneously to all devices – consumer and commercial – and there will be no way to revert this change. After that, IE friends (if they still exist) will see a banner that says “The future of Internet Explorer is in Microsoft Edge” and will be redirected to Edge every time they try to launch IE. But their browsing data will be migrated without a problem according to the company.
Organizations already using Chromium Edge in IE mode to manage legacy use cases will not be affected by this update. However, companies that have not yet done so despite Microsoft's warnings risk disruption to their business operations as some IE-based applications may stop working.
It's important to mention that although the redirect is effective today, the IE icons on the taskbar will still be there for the next few months. They will be removed by June 13, 2023 through a Windows update.
