Internet Explorer is finally retiring after more than 25 years of service.

Tech giant Microsoft announced its plans to retire its web browser Internet Explorer (IE) for certain versions of Windows 10 beginning June 15, 2022.

“We are announcing that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge,” Microsoft announced on Wednesday, May 19, referring to its other browser.

“Not only is Microsoft Edge a faster, more secure and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it is also able to address a key concern: compatibility for older, legacy websites and applications,” the company added.

IE had been the go-to browser on Windows PCs for more than 25 years before rivals such as Mozilla’s Firefox and Google’s Chrome took away users. 

However, with its iconic “slow loading” and “always crashing” performance, netizens took over Twitter to ribbed the retirement of IE. Check out below some hilarious tweets.
