Jackson clarifies that it's fine to use Internet Explorer where necessary, for example certain enterprise solutions, but even those companies should not be using IE as its default web browser.

Washington D.C, February 9: We all dread using Internet Explorer, but some businesses and organisations still use the good old browser because they can't help it.

Most web app developers these days are testing their apps on modern browsers.

"We're not supporting new web standards for it and, while many sites work fine, developers by and large just aren't testing for Internet Explorer these days", Mr Jackson said. It's time to event stop calling Internet Explorer a web browser.

He laid out the reasons why users should switch in a blog post titled the 'perils of using Internet Explorer as your default browser'.

Calling Internet Explorer a "compatibility solution", Chris made a revelation about the notorious browser.

Last week, Microsoft said support for Internet Explorer 10 will end on January 31, 2020, leaving Internet Explorer 11 as the final version of the software that will receive security updates. Having one place for employees to go for their internet needs eliminates confusion around which browser to use and when. Moreover, new apps are coming out with greater frequency every year and as such, testing them on the browser that was sent to the technology retirement home in 2015 doesn't appear to be a viable option. Consequently, if we continued our previous method, you would end up in a scenario where, by making the best or most effective use of the things you have, you will end up like that you are not capable to use new apps as they come out.

While Microsoft is going offensive on the users of Internet Explorer, there is no denying the fact IE is still popular.
