Internet Explorer End of Life

MICROSOFT PULLS A FAST ONE ON ENTERPRISE IT

OK, a “Fast One” is a bit of a stretch… They’ve been trying to ween consumers off IE since 2015 – quite successfully, I might add. In other words, Internet Explorer End of Life is happening (like it or not).

The typical glacial pace of Enterprise IT, on the other hand, has made some a little, let’s say, suspect that the transition will be seamless within a 1-year window.

As stated in these pages before, IE will not be deprecated this August (that’s when IE support for 365 ends), but the retirement date has been officially set for June 15, 2022 – An Enterprise IT blink of the eye.

Microsoft itself admits that “enterprises have 1,678 legacy apps on average.” With an estimated cost of replacement of $350,000 each (half a billion on average!).

Microsoft has assured us that most everything that runs in IE now, will run in Edge “IE mode”. Time will tell if they are accurate, but even if an app runs in IE mode it will still have the same compatibility and security concerns that exist using IE11.

From a Browsium perspective, finishing up a planned upgrade for Ion to work in Edge “IE Mode”, has become our top priority – version 4.9 of our software will be available in approximately 30 days.

“you may have a surprisingly large set of legacy Internet Explorer-based websites and apps, built up over many years. In fact, we found that enterprises have 1,678 legacy apps on average.”

– Microsoft
