Friendly Reminder: Most Versions of Windows 10 Will no Longer Include Internet Explorer After the June Cumulative Update.

How will this affect you?

First, if you wish to continue having access to IE in Windows 10, you will need to access it via the “browser within a browser,” Edge IE Mode.

Depending on what Browsium products you are using and how you are using them plays a significant role in how urgent it is to address this change.

Ion: was designed to run in IE and required a good bit of retooling to work in Edge IE Mode. If your enterprise uses Ion, you must update to version 4.9.x of our software before deploying the Windows June Cumulative Update! Please contact us at [email protected] ASAP for assistance.

Catalyst: Since Edge IE Mode is essentially another browser, this one is pretty much a no-brainer. If you want the flexibility to switch to and from Edge IE Mode, just like any other major browser, you can if you upgrade to software version 4.9.x.. If you’re a Google Chrome default house, there is no other way to switch from Chrome to EIEM back to Chrome than Catalyst.

Proton: Again, Edge IE Mode being essentially another browser, to gain the telemetry of what is going on inside Edge IE Mode, upgrading to version 4.9.x is all that it takes to be GTG!

“If your enterprise uses Ion, you must update to version 4.9.x of our software before deploying the Windows June Cumulative Update!”

IE is dead!

Long Live Edge IE Mode; and multiple Java versions, ActiveX, Browser Incompatibilities, Security Holes! The fact is quite simple. Microsoft didn’t simply deprecate IE years ago because some of the biggest companies in the world still require the use of mission-critical Legacy applications that run in IE. Let me make this clear: There will never, I mean NEVER, be a hipster or any other kind of movement back to IE ala vinyl records for the public.

New Name Same Issues

To make it more difficult to continue using IE, you will need to access IE’s functionality via Edge after June. Essentially a browser within another browser that they REALLY want you to use. The problem is that nearly all the same issues in IE translate to Edge IE Mode.

The Ion Locked-Down Solution

When a user enters a trusted Ion configured URL, a new window opens that can run ActiveX, multiple Java instances, IE versions, and other necessary IE functions in a locked-down environment, safe from malicious intent. Below is a simplified example for Java.
