What's Happening at Flagship and Other Important Announcements

 

Internet Explorer End-Of-Life

April 8, 2022

Microsoft has announced that their browser, Internet Explorer, will be retired and go out of support on June 15, 2022 for certain versions of Windows 10.

Of course, Microsoft is pushing users to their new browser Edge, but users may also opt for any of the other common web browsers like: Google Chrome, Apple Safari or Mozilla Firefox. 

 

It is important to know that Microsoft Edge will contain a feature called IE Mode where it will emulate Internet Explorer for legacy websites and applications.  This feature will be supported through 2029 for any operating system that Microsoft continues to support.  They have promised to provide a 1-year notice for the future retirement of IE Mode.

In a landscape where browser developers constantly update and change their products, Flagship is committed to maintaining compatibility across the common, modern, supported web browsers.  We do encourage our clients to go ahead and plan for this change by speaking with your IT support staff or application vendors to be sure you are prepared for this transition.
