Internet Explorer was finally killed off for almost every consumer version of Windows on June 15, 2022. It’s death was even
mournedcelebrated with faux gravestones commemorating it as a “good tool to download other browsers”. However, it seems like Microsoft’s browser still lives on in the depths of its latest operating system.
Although Windows 11 does not officially come bundled with Internet Explorer, the ancient browser can still be launched on the OS.
This thing will never die. I will go to my grave when Windows 32 hits and it will still come with iexplore.exe because the online passport request form in some tiny municipality in Slovenia only works in IE.
