this probably isn't the problem it was years ago...

but i remember early on when i was doing some web design.. seemed like there was the html that ie understood.. and the html that the rest of the world used. all sorts of weird css workarounds to get stuff to display right.

don't want to start a browser war... (ok, so i do...)

but.. chrome > ie

kevinb1994:
What can I say, Iím not surprised...

It took this long to kill off a no-longer-necessary web browser. Nice.

SectorZ:
It'll be interesting to see how many programs that use IE for some purpose that aren't maintained anymore will die with this change.

Quicken, for example, uses IE to update accounts. I presume over the next year they can fix how that works. Hell for all I know they use the built in IE parts in Edge to do it and maybe have done so for years.

I honestly cannot remember the last time I unironically used Internet Explorer. Long live the Brave browser!
