This doesn't affect anyone, I just wanted to mark the occasion, because in the early years of this site's life, it was just the worst. Everyone used it, it implemented every standard in a different way, and it didn't support anything new or useful. Bye bye IE, I always hated you.

I never liked Internet Explorer either. It's only through monopoly and it being free (at a time when most web browsers weren't) that allowed it to beat Netscape.

For some reason, I actually thought "this has to be [violet]" before I clicked on it. NSG wouldn't care that much for a dead browser, even if they personally hated it. NSG mostly cares about RL politics and international events.

I have my doubts about Edge, but performance on low end hardware is impressive.

I use Edge whenever I am on a public computer.

Anyway, I'm not sure if I have much to say about Internet Explorer. Maybe it's because I spent much of my childhood using some form of Safari, Firefox, or Chrome, with the only time I used Internet Explorer being if I was on a school computer or someone else's computer. I don't think it was too bad, but I won't say that Internet Explorer was the best thing since sliced bread or Betty White (may she rest in peace), and given there are a fuckton more up-to-date browsers available, Internet Explorer is most certainly obsolete.

As a full-time user, the "less memory use" bit really doesn't hold up in my view; it freezes a bit too often.

This wouldn't affect users like me for instance. I mainly use either Edge (this post was written from Edge) or Chrome to access this site. IE wasn't really good.
