Internet Explorer has been around since 1995 and has been the go to browser for many. However, if you’re one of those that has been using it by default, that needs to change. Why? Microsoft has ended support as of the 15th June meaning no more security updates.

Security vulnerabilities will no longer be fixed and continuing to use Internet Explorer could mean opening up your computer to these dangers.

Alternatives to Internet Explorer

Anyone wanting to stick with a Microsoft based browser will now be directed to Microsoft Edge (holding a 5.83% share of the global desktop browser market), a faster, more secure browser. Alternatively there are other browsers available. Google Chrome (with a massive 77.03% share), Mozilla Firefox (7.69%) or for Apple users, Safari (8.87%) to name a few.

We’re just going to focus on two of the big names in this article – Microsoft’s replacement for Internet Explorer – Microsoft Edge (now the default browser for Windows 11 computers) and Google Chrome.
