IE is (kinda) Dead
So, June 15th came and went, thankfully, MS chose a more reasonable approach than they had implied in earlier announcements. In other words, more of a “soft deprecation”. See: Internet Explorer 11 has retired and is officially out of support—what you need to know | Windows Experience Blog
What does this mean for you?
At some point soon, if you haven’t already moved your users to Edge IE Mode, users will be directed to a page that explains the whole moving to Edge IE Mode scenario, and how to do it.
I’ll go out on a limb here and suggest that that may be a helpdesk nightmare if you are unprepared.
On the positive side, the “soft deprecation” spreads out the pain – we’ve been very busy here at Team Browsium helping customers with Internet Explorer/Edge IE Mode compatibility issues.
Not Everything That Worked in IE Works in Edge IE Mode
Many people are reporting issues with IE applications running in Edge IE Mode. The problems range from simple graphic anomalies to complete blockage of a specific function. So far, we have been able to remediate these issues using Ion (see below), at a fraction of the price of updating apps to work in another browser or to replace them.

Ion has always been the only purpose-built software designed to remediate Internet Explorer compatibility issues. Once configured to a specific URL, a secure Ion-controlled window is opened that can run ActiveX, multiple Java and IE versions, and a host of other necessary IE functions in a locked-down environment.
