MICROSOFT is putting the final nail in the coffin of Internet Explorer this week

Internet Explorer is a far cry from its 90s and early 00s heyday when it was the most popular web browser around

The firm has already attempted to shift away from Internet Explorer, building a new app Edge in 2015

In more recent times, it's battered by new arrivals like Google Chrome and Firefox

So anyone still using the old software after all this time needs to jump ship to something else

Wednesday onwards Microsoft will no longer service it with patches to keep hackers out

Not only is Microsoft Edge a faster, more secure and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer

But it is also able to address a key concern: compatibility for older, legacy websites and applications
