Internet Explorer will be removed from Windows 10 in June 2022

As written in this article by the Windows Team themselves, the classic browser Internet Explorer 11 will be removed from Windows on June 15, 2022. This means that you will no longer be able to access IE11 and browser the web with it.

What should you do?

Well, you don’t have to do anything if you don’t use Internet Explorer. The new update in the future will probably just disable the access to the browser, but it may still be in Windows 10 itself.

If you do use Internet Explorer still today, Microsoft wants you to switch to their new Chromium powered browser, Microsoft Edge. But of course you are free to install and use any browser you like. For a recommendation, see the list below.

Switch your browser

If you still want to use Windows 10 in the future, you cannot use IE11 anymore. That means you should switch to another browser. Here is a list of the best ones out there.

If you are privacy oriented and care about your user data not being used by a third party, you should install and use Mozilla Firefox or Brave. Of course, you can also harden the browser by installing add-ons like “Privacy Badger” or the Mozilla “Facebook Container”.

If you care about features, you may want to use the preinstalled Microsoft Edge browser or install the Opera browser, which comes with a lot of features as well. Vivaldi is also another unknown alternative.

Or if you’re into the Google ecosystem, you can install the Chrome browser.
