Internet Explorer 11
Rating: 5.00 (Votes: 1)
In August 2020, Microsoft announced the phasing out of support for Internet Explorer 11. The application is thus slowly being ousted from the development teams. This is how in November 2020, the division dedicated to Teams stopped support for Internet Explorer 11. In March 2021, the Redmond firm announced the end of support for the legacy version of Microsoft Edge , whose rendering engine was borrowed from Internet Explorer 11. The fatal blow will probably be dealt to it in August 2021. The team responsible for designing the Microsoft 365 office suite will in turn announce the end of support for IE 11.
Windows 8.1 web browser
Last version of Internet Explorer before the switch to Microsoft Edge on Windows 10, Internet Explorer 11 is Microsoft's web browser included by default in Windows 8.1. While Windows 7 came with version 10 of the browser when it was launched, users of this system could also take advantage of the latest version of the browser.
As a reminder, Internet Explorer 11 is also available for Windows Server 2008 R2 (64 bits).
With Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft has brought
Better performance (better memory management) and faster page openings, in particular via SPDY protocol support. This experimental protocol initiated by Google aims to increase the capabilities of the HTTP protocol (but does not replace it).
Support for the use of 100 tabs per window simultaneously (although it will be necessary to be able to navigate)
Support for new web standards
new tool for developers (inspect, “F12” key)
support for WebGL (graphics hardware acceleration)
On the other hand, no change on the media side for these Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 versions where it was always necessary to be satisfied with Flash and Silverlight.
Opt for Microsoft Edge with its IE11 mode
The fruits of this work have been optimized over the years and in particular within the Chromium version of Microsoft Edge which is today the only browser actively supported by Microsoft. If your operating system is compatible, we invite you to install it and update your web applications that are not compatible or strictly optimized for IE11. Note in passing that Microsoft Edge has a compatibility mode for companies whose operation is still based on old intranet applications.
