Last year in May, Microsoft stated an announcement that Internet explorer will be inoperated from June 15, 2022 on some versions of Windows 10. It then said customers to switch to Microsoft edge stating that it provides support for legacy and modern websites and apps. Internet explorer was released in 1995 as add-on package of Windows 95. After some time the company started providing browser for free as a part of a package. The browser reached its peak of 95 percent in 2003, but was unable to maintain its position and began to decline.
