Late in 2013, Internet Explorer 11 allowed the IE users to embrace modern features. In 2015, Microsoft released Edge as IE 11 successor.

Several platforms and web services are now progressively abandoning support to Internet Explorer 11 because of performance and future development limitations. Open-source code libraries are progressively ending support to IE 11 as well, lacking to support security fixes in the near future.

As officially stated by Microsoft in August 2020, Microsoft 365 apps and services will no longer support Internet Explorer 11.
