Changes to Browser Support and Enhancements Coming to Schedule360

December 13, 2021

Some important changes are coming soon, and we wanted you to be the first to know. 

What’s Changing?  

After more than 25 years, Microsoft is officially retiring Internet Explorer next year. The aging web browser has been largely unused by most consumers for years, and Microsoft is officially retiring IE on June 15, 2022 in favor of Microsoft Edge.

Additionally, Microsoft terminated support for Internet Explorer 11 for the Microsoft Teams web app last year and is planning to cut off access to Microsoft 365 services later this year.

Internet Explorer is Retiring

Microsoft has been encouraging customers to stop using Internet Explorer for more than five years now. Microsoft Edge first appeared in 2015, kicking off the beginning of the end for the Internet Explorer brand. It’s been labeled a compatibility solution rather than a browser. With the end in sight, Microsoft has been reinforcing their message for businesses to stop using the aging browser and instead utilize Edge and its Internet Explorer mode. 

Change can be difficult, but users who move to Microsoft Edge or another modern browser will see their performance improve over that of Internet Explorer, resulting in a more consistent experience. Microsoft Edge is faster, more secure, and more compatible with early-internet websites which are qualities its predecessor was lacking. 

Upcoming Enhancements
