End of an era: Microsoft curtails 27-year-old Internet Explorer, leaves Tweeple nostalgic
The app will finally retire after 27 years of service.

Microsoft is now curtailing one of its oldest browsers, Internet Explorer, after 27 years. Almost no one uses the search engine nowadays, but people are feeling nostalgic as many of their earliest memories on the Internet are associated with this browser. For some, Internet Explorer was their gateway and introduction to the internet.

Remember coming back from school, hurriedly rushing to freshen up, and then coming back to your desktop but then struggling to use the internet because of the slow speed? Internet Explorer has also become the target for jeers because of its slowness.

Last year, Microsoft announced that the company is set to discontinue its service and is bringing in the new Edge browser, which is the successor of IE. It feels like the time has come and Microsoft has finally announced that the desktop application will be retired on June 15.

With just a day left, people are moving to Twitter to share their memories with the search engine optimizer. Some are sharing giggle-worthy memes, while for some it’s no less than nostalgia.

The app will finally retire after 27 years of service. It became the most popular search engine by 1996  because it supported Javascript and allowed users to see JPEGs and GIFs.

It was first launched in 1995 as a Windows 95 add-on package. In 2003, the browser achieved a peak of 95 percent usage, but it was unable to sustain its position, and its user base began to fall gradually.

Many new browsers joined the market, promising better user interfaces, quicker internet speeds, and smoother performance.
