Microsoft has finally decided to stop the consumer version of Internet Explorer.

It announced the plan last year, making version 11 of the Windows 11 browser final.

Explorer first appeared on the desktop in Windows computers in 1995, and by 2004 it captured 95 percent of the market.

But Google Chrome, Apple’s Safari and Mozilla Firefox are currently dominant.
