Who still remembers Internet Explorer? Does anyone still use it?

Recommended Posts

Who still remembers the iconic Windows browser Internet Explorer, It has come a long way since it's first release in 1995 along with Windows 95.  Does anyone still using it? I mean they still have a version 11 for Windows 7 and 10.

I remember it. It used to be the browser to use. How things change!I now use Google chrome. I however have Internet explorer as my secondary browser. I use it for some of my websites like Pocket or Pinterest. It's actually quite fast. I recently upgraded to the latest version. It looks amazing and has new features like voice recognition. Ordinarily it would give Chrome a run for its money, but for some reason, it's not making any traction in the market. I think once people get comfortable with what they are using, it's a wrap for other service providers.

I still remember how fast (well, I guess for those years' standard) Internet Explorer was, however everything's different now. Though I still have Internet Explorer browser for my Windows 8 Laptop because of it being a built-in software, I don't use it anymore. I'm an avid user of Google Chrome now and I guess I won't be able to use Internet Explorer again because I actually used Edge (it's updated version in Win 10) and it's pretty much slower compared to Chrome, still, and that's disappointing.

I haven't used it since Win95, i remember using it with a modem with a 256kb speed lol... the ones with a squicking sound every time its connecting! Well those where the days... When Firefox was introduced, internet explorer was just an option for me . I haven't used it even when some software's used it as a primary connecting browser. I haven't seen the upgraded version of internet explorer, and still not planning to use it specially when all my emails and social media accounts are sync with google chrome.

I couldn't remember when was the first time I'd used it maybe around 2002 or 2003 when I had my first desktop computer. But when Google Chrome emerged and starting getting popular and have lots of positive feedback I changed my default browser into Google Chrome. Though I still use Internet Explorer when I have to reformat my laptop because I needed to download Google Chrome then after that I'm going to change again my default browser into Google.

It used to be the default browser back in the day but with the emergence of so many faster and more entertaining browsers it has become forgotten like an old religion.

As change is the only constant thing, people have moved on and embraced newer and better things.

It hasn't been missed and lots of younger people don't even know about it except when their devices bring it up as an option.

Firefox, Chrome etc will suffice  for now.

Sure don't and won't in the future unless something changes with Google Chrome that turns me away.  It's slow, buggy and doesn't follow standards.

Oh I still remember that! Internet explorer, a browser I use before to be able to log in to Friendster. Then switched to Firefox and eventually to Google Chrome.
