End of support means that new features from Google will not be compatible with Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer 11 was released in 2013 with Windows 8.1 and was replaced by Microsoft Edge in 2015. Microsoft has already declared to roll back IE11 as of June 15, 2022. Internet Explorer users will only be able to run it until next year. After that, the new Microsoft Edge will take its place.
A few months ago, Microsoft introduced IE Mode for Edge to make it easier to switch from Internet Explorer to Microsoft Edge. With this mode, businesses can easily transition and quickly adopt the new Chromium-based browser. Microsoft is requesting support for IE mode in the Edge browser by 2029.
According to 9to5Google, “Google didn’t just stop Internet Explorer 11 from using Google search, leaving people unable to search the web. Instead, Internet Explorer customers now get a rudimentary “fallback experience” for Google search, which can perform basic searches but is not as comprehensive as Google on modern browsers. To put it plainly, the results pages aren’t appealing, but at least actionable for those who can’t use Chrome, Edge, or Firefox.
