Someone Creates Internet Explorer Gravestone In South Korea After Microsoft Shuts It Down

A gravestone has been erected in South Korea for the late Internet Explorer after Microsoft announced earlier this week that it was being sent into digital retirement.

Microsoft officially shut down the browser after 27 years of service on Wednesday (June 15).

Although web users often ridiculed Internet Explorer, there was still a sense of sorrow. One country that is definitely mourning the loss of the digital friend is South Korea, which surprisingly, still relied heavily on the internet browser.

Internet Explorer (formerly Microsoft Internet Explorer and Windows Internet Explorer, commonly abbreviated IE or MSIE) was an Internet Browser by Microsoft and included in the Microsoft Windows line of operating systems which was later discontinued on June 15, 2022.

Starting in 1995, It was first released as part of the add-on package Plus! for Windows 95 that year. Later versions were available as free downloads, or in-service packs, and included in the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) service releases of Windows 95 and later versions of Windows.

New feature development for the browser was discontinued in 2016 in favor of new browser Microsoft Edge. Microsoft 365 ended support for Internet Explorer on August 17, 2021, and Microsoft Teams ended support for IE on November 30, 2020.

Estimates for Internet Explorer’s market share in 2022 are about 0.38% across all platforms, or by StatCounter’s numbers ranked 10th. On traditional PCs, the only platform on which it has ever had significant share, it is ranked 6th at 0.97%, after Opera. Microsoft Edge, IE’s successor, first overtook Internet Explorer in terms of market share in November 2019.
