When it was first launched in 1995, Internet Explorer steadily climbed to the top, capturing the market of other established browsers such as Mosaic and Netscape. From the period between 1997 to 2008, Internet Explorer was the most used browser worldwide. But, in 2002, Mozilla launched Firefox, a browser that would slowly capture the user’s interest and reign for a while.
Since then, the usage of Internet Explorer has been slowly declining. When Google launched Chrome, it followed the path set by IE and Firefox, growing steadily until it overtook all the browsers in the industry.

Microsoft Edge also joined the masses and shared a tweet, thanking its predecessor and expressing its condolences on the discontinuation.
While we are sad to see Internet Explorer go, we wonder if Microsoft shouldn’t have ended support sooner. For years, people complained about its slow loading speed, which never improved to the current standards. It’s time to see if Microsoft Edge delivers on the promise of being better.
