Windows and Internet Explorer Starting in 1995, Internet Explorer (often abbreviated as IE or MSIE) was a discontinued series of graphical web browsers created by Microsoft and included in the Microsoft Windows operating system. That year, it was originally published as part of the Plus! add-on package for Windows 95.

That year, it was originally published as part of the Plus! add-on package for Windows 95. Later versions of Windows 95 and later versions were accessible as free downloads or in-service packs and included in the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) service releases. In 2016, fresh feature development for the browser was halted in favor of Microsoft Edge, a new browser.

Internet Explorer will continue to get security upgrades until at least 2029 since it is a Windows component included in long-term lifecycle versions of Windows, such as Windows Server 2019.

On August 17, 2021, Microsoft 365 will stop supporting Internet Explorer, while Microsoft Teams will stop supporting it on November 30, 2020. On June 15, 2022, Internet Explorer will be phased out, and Microsoft Edge with IE mode for older sites will be the only option.

Internet Explorer was formerly the most popular web browser, with a usage share of over 95 percent by 2003. This happened after Microsoft utilized bundling to defeat Netscape, the leading browser in the 1990s, in the first browser war. With the release of Firefox (2004) and Google Chrome (2008) and the rising popularity of mobile operating systems such as Android and iOS that do not support Internet Explorer, its use share has dropped.

According to StatCounter’s data, Internet Explorer’s market share in 2021 is expected to be about 0.58 percent across all platforms. After Opera, it is rated 6th on conventional PCs, the only platform on which it has ever had a substantial share. In November 2019, Microsoft Edge, IE’s replacement, overtook Internet Explorer in market share for the first time.

In the late 1990s, Microsoft spent over $100 million per year developing Internet Explorer, with over 1,000 employees working on the project by 1999.

Internet Explorer has also been released for other operating systems, including an Xbox 360 version called Internet Explorer for Xbox, as well as versions for platforms that Microsoft no longer supports: Internet Explorer for Mac and Internet Explorer for UNIX (Solaris and HP-UX), as well as an embedded OEM version called Pocket Internet Explorer, later rebranded Internet Explorer Mobile, for Windows CE, Windows Phone, and previously, based on Internet Explorer 7.

Microsoft stated on March 17, 2015 that Microsoft Edge will be the default browser for Windows 10 devices, replacing Internet Explorer. As a result, Internet Explorer 11 is the final version. However, Internet Explorer is still available on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019 for business use.

Consumers have only had official support for Internet Explorer 11 from January 12, 2016, with extended support for Internet Explorer 10 ending on January 31, 2020. Support varies depending on the technological capabilities of the operating system and its support life cycle. On May 20, 2021, it was announced that complete support for Internet Explorer will be phased down on June 15, 2022, with Microsoft Edge with IE mode for legacy sites serving as a replacement.

The browser has been criticized for its use of third-party technology (such as the source code of Spyglass Mosaic, which was used without permission in early versions) as well as security and privacy flaws, with the United States and the European Union alleging that the browser’s integration with Windows has harmed fair browser competition.
