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

He explains that if Microsoft carried on supporting older browsers, then it would encourage users to work with a browser with which modern web standards simply weren't designed leading them to "miss out on a progressively larger portion of the web".

It all looks like that Microsoft wants to end the legacy product once and for all, Chris Jackson told that it is fine to use Internet Explorer for certain enterprise solutions, but, still, it should not depend on with full trust as a main web browser.

The Company's own security chief has warned millions of people who continue to use Internet Explorer as a default web browser are placing themselves in risk "peril". It's time to event stop calling Internet Explorer a web browser. Moreover, new apps are coming out with greater frequency every year and as such, testing them on the browser that was sent to the technology retirement home in 2015 doesn't appear to be a viable option.

This, to some extent, should help Microsoft push businesses away from Internet Explorer and embrace a more robust browser.

However, it struggled in the face of competition, and in May 2012 it was announced that Google's Chrome overtook Internet Explorer as the most used browser worldwide.

Furthermore, while most of the users these days reportedly use either Chrome or Firefox, there are a lot of businesses in the world that still rely on Microsoft's Internet Explorer for older web apps that haven't been modernized, The Verge reported.

"Internet Explorer is a compatibility solution", writes Jackson. Jackson said this sort of thinking "seems like a deliberate decision to take on some 'technical debt, '" as he put it. For new Edge is better than it has ever been. Get up to date, get the most out of the web and your business. "So, if we continued our previous approach, you would end up in a scenario where, by optimizing for the things you have, you end up not being able to use new apps as they come out".

While Microsoft is going offensive on the users of Internet Explorer, there is no denying the fact IE is still popular.
