Microsoft is slowly shifting its users from Internet Explorer to Microsoft Edge with the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application being retired and having its support withdrawn just under a year from now. The more observant of you might also have seen that Microsoft has slowly been removing support from Internet Explorer over the past few months. It’s mostly to address compatibility issues for older websites and apps. However, there are a few other reasons why Microsoft is doing this.
As mentioned, Edge supports both legacy and modern websites. It allows you to activate Internet Explorer mode, giving you built-in legacy browser support for anything that requires Internet Explorer.
Edge’s dual engine means that you don’t have to switch browsers depending on what site you’re visiting. This is a huge time saver and should be a massive boost to your productivity.
With Microsoft Edge, you’ll get the highest possible protection on Windows 10 from phishing attacks and malware. Edge will also scan the dark web for any personal credentials that may have ended up there.
