Goodbye Explorer, hello Edge!
by MACC’s Technical Support Team
The end of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has begun. As many people upgrade to Windows 10, they will see a new Internet icon on their desktop. The old Internet Explorer is still available but is no longer the default browser. Internet Explorer 11 will be the final version to be released. Support and security updates for the browser are said to continue for the next five years according to Microsoft.
With Microsoft’s newest browser, Microsoft Edge, there is nothing for the user to worry about. Microsoft Edge has replaced Internet Explorer and claims to be better in many ways. Edge is made to be faster and safer for the Windows platform and many people who previously used Internet Explorer have already made the switch to Microsoft Edge.
There are many other internet browsers out there for users to access. Most popular are Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Along with other browsers, Microsoft has also created a mobile app for Edge, which can be found on Apple iOS and Android. Using the same browser on your computer and smartphone can make things much easier. Each internet browser does something different than the others, but what it comes down to is user preference. Many of us have been using a specific browser for so long it becomes second nature. Choose what works best for you!
If you have any questions regarding using a new browser, or if there is anything we can do for you, please don’t hesitate to contact your MACC Tech Support Team and we will be happy to help! We can be reached at 402-533-5300, or via email, at [email protected].
