Microsoft cybersecurity expert: Please, stop using Internet Explorer as a web browser

Microsoft Drag Internet Explorer to the Trash. No ReallyMore

A Microsoft cybersecurity expert suggested in a recent blog post that you really shouldn't use Internet Explorer as your default browser.

Microsoft replaced Internet Explorer with Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 as the default browser, and since the first version of the OS came out in July 2015, the company pushed very hard for users to try out its modern app.

"Internet Explorer is a compatibility solution", warns Jackson, rather than a Web browser that businesses should be leveraging on a daily basis for all the regular browsing activity.

Microsoft wants users to stop surfing the web on Internet Explorer.

Microsoft has recommended users to try and stay ahead of the curve and transition to new modern browser for not only compatibility improvements but also security reasons as well.

The landscape has seen a considerable shift since then- Chrome is now the dominant browser, in terms of market share, followed by Safari in a distant second place, and then Firefox, according to both StatCounter and Net Applications. As for which browser you should use, Jackson said that's up to you.

Google Chrome overtook Internet Explorer as the world's most popular web browser in 2016. "As new apps are coming out with greater frequency, what we want to help you do is avoid having to miss out on a progressively larger portion of the web!"

He added that it's generally OK for people to use Internet Explorer in an enterprise environment, but they would better protect themselves if they switch to a newer browser.

The blog goes on to talk about the concept of "technical debt", which was brought into sharp focus this week after details were published of Redmond's pricing structure for supporting Windows 7 beyond next January's end of life date.

Unfortunately, Internet Explorer isn't equipped to handle the modern web.

The brand has struggled to shake off the bad reputation of Internet Explorer 6, which was notoriously insecure.
