O outrora dominante “Internet Explorer” está oficialmente morto

By Ninian Carter

June 16, 2022 - O suporte ao navegador Internet Explorer foi oficialmente encerrado pela Microsoft, assinalando o fim da que já foi a plataforma dominante.

On June 15, Microsoft officially ended support for the once-mighty, 27-year-old, Internet Explorer web browser.

The demise of IE will come as no real surprise to most PC users, given that it has been superseded by a newer Microsoft browser called Edge, which launched in 2015.

To be honest, neither of them are very popular these days – as of May 2022, IE has a market share of just 0.64%, while Edge doesn’t fare much better with a 3.99% share.

IE was once the most dominant browsing platform, with an estimated peak market share in the early 2000s of over 90% – thanks to being contentiously bundled in with the Windows PC operating system.

However, today’s market is very much different to that found when IE launched in 1995. Then Netscape Navigator ruled the browsing world until IE dethroned it. Now Google’s Chrome is the most successful browsing tool, with a 64.95% market share, followed by Apple’s Safari on 19.01%.

The future of Mozilla’s once popular Firefox looks questionable as it flounders with a dwindling share of just 3.26%.
