Internet Explorer isn’t dead yet, but Microsoft is set on retiring the browser by pulling support.

“Surprisingly, Internet Explorer 11 isn’t dead yet. But Microsoft is trying to phase it out. On Monday, the company announced that Microsoft 365 office applications will eventually no longer run over the old browser. Redmond will begin sunsetting support starting on Nov. 30 with the Microsoft Teams app, the company’s video conferencing and chat solution.
