The era of the pre-installed Internet Explorer browser ended after almost a decade. The period of Microsoft Edge Legacy ended much faster; it will disappear from the computers of those users who update their Windows on April 13.
Microsoft Edge Legacy replaced Internet Explorer in 2015 with the release of Windows 10. On March 9, its support will end, and then it will automatically disappear from all computers (unless you update your operating system).
In the update, which will be released for Windows on April 13, Microsoft has decided to remove the obsolete Edge Legacy browser. The company strongly recommends upgrading to Edge's new version based on Google's open-source Chromium software that launched a year ago.
For those who do not do it on their own, Windows will transfer there automatically - the update will remove the outdated browser and replace it with a new one. If the updated browser is already installed on your computer, you will not notice much – Edge Legacy will simply disappear on your computers.
If you use a different browser, it will affect your life in almost no way - unless one unnecessary program disappears and another will appear in its place. By the way, for those who are interested – Internet Explorer is still alive! It has been living in rare updates since November 2020, which will end entirely on August 17, 2021. It turns out that Internet Explorer will outlive its heir.
