End Of Microsoft Internet Explorer: End Of An Era?

Internet Explorer was never the go-to choice for browsing the internet. While its launch opened doors to the internet, it also opened doors for better browsers. Despite numerous upgrades and updates, users preferred other browsers to Internet Explorer.

More often, one would simply use Internet Explorer to download other browsers on their system. That said, the end of Internet Explorer is like an end of an era. Most modern internet users would have hardly brushed their experience with Internet Explorer. However, with it, we wouldn't have the faster and smoother browsers we have today!
