Today, Microsoft is finding a way to kill off Internet Explorer in Windows 10 by eliminating support for Microsoft Teams.
In August, Microsoft started spreading out its arrangements for the finish of life for Internet Explorer and how they plan on gradually eliminating support for the archaic browser.
As a component of this arrangement, Microsoft is done supporting Microsoft Teams in Internet Explorer beginning on November 30th, 2020. While clients might have the option to utilize the administration, there will be no ensures that it will work accurately or Microsoft will at this point don’t offer help.
“This means that after the above dates, customers will have a degraded experience or will be unable to connect to Microsoft 365 apps and services on IE 11. For degraded experiences, new Microsoft 365 features will not be available or certain features may cease to work when accessing the app or service via IE 11,” Microsoft clarified.
When logging into the Microsoft Teams web version, it will check in case you’re visiting the webpage with contradictory Internet Explorer. In the event that it is, the stage will show a message expressing, “This website doesn’t work with Internet Explorer!” and recommend you to utilize the desktop customer.
While clients can tap on the ‘Keep using Internet Explorer,’ Microsoft makes no assurance that Microsoft Teams will work accurately in the unsupported browser.
In addition to Teams, Microsoft discreetly introduced an ‘IEtoEdge’ Internet Explorer program partner object (BHO) in October that consequently diverts inconsistent locales to Microsoft edge. Microsoft has incorporated top notch of 1,200 locales that are inconsistent with Internet Explorer and will be diverted to Microsoft Edge, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google Drive, Microsoft Teams, ESPN, Yahoo Mail, and some more.
This component is intended to check if a site is contradictory with Internet Explorer. At the point when this is identified, a blunder message is shown, and Internet Explorer consequently opens Microsoft Edge with the accompanying message.
After the redirect, Microsoft Edge will show a standard suggesting clients set Edge as the default program on Windows 10 for “modern experience, better compatibility and privacy.”
Microsoft is additionally finding a way to make Internet Explorer obsolete. For instance, Microsoft will block Internet Explorer across Microsoft 365 services on August 17th, 2021.
