    I understand that Microsoft also had an advertising app in Win 11 that people had an issue with and they issued an update to get rid of it.

    Talk about absolutely butt f***ing the competition....
    That brings back memories. IE6 with just about every toolbar you can find or have implanted on it. The most useful one was MSN which allowed for multiple tabs.

    Years ago, I had so many problems with I.E. that I was forces to use "Netscape" to get to where I had to go, and do what I needed to do.

    Netscape was slow but it worked where I.E. did not.

    It was such a breath of fresh air when Mozilla released the Beta test version of Firefox.
    I got that early beta, and I was there the morning that they released Firefox ver 1.0. What a day!
    It's hard to believe that they are now at ver 102. How time flies!

    Time doesn't fly. It's just an equivalency to mass and time dilation... It CAN be manipulated for use - one day...

    IE on Win7/8.x is not officially dead yet

    the KB5015805 cumulative update for IE11 on Win7 & 8.x released earlier this July 2022 proves the statement on the 1st post otherwise

    How many security updates are STILL being released for Windows 7 today in light of Windows 8, 10 and now 11? Further, read what it says from the page YOU linked to.

    Internet Explorer isn't going to be updated to version 12 any time soon... Microsoft is trying to push Edge and as was already posted, Internet Explorer will be striped out of Windows 10 via an "update." Windows 11 doesn't even have Internet Explorer installed.

    I'm predicting some chaos with certain programs and functionality once Internet Explorer is pulled from 10.
