Someone Has Created an Internet Explorer Gravestone
Microsoft shipped the last updates for Internet Explorer earlier this week, and now the browser is retired for many Windows users.
Without a doubt, the demise of Internet Explorer is a historical moment in the software world, Microsoft’s application has long been the leading name in the browser market.
However, as alternatives like Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome gained more traction, Internet Explorer started losing users, eventually becoming just “the best browser to download other browsers.”
Microsoft itself started focusing on a new modern experience that finally went live as part of the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge, so Internet Explorer made no sense in the long term.
As a result, the software giant is retiring Internet Explorer, and South Korean software engineer Jung Ki-young decided to mark this moment in the best possible way: he spent $330 on a gravestone that was placed at the café run by his brother.
