Internet Explorer to be officially shut down by Microsoft

Internet Explorer to be officially shut down by Microsoft

It’s the end of a technological era as Microsoft has revealed that it will be officially phasing out Internet Explorer. 

An iconic part of many people’s memories growing up using the browser, the Internet Explorer was launched in 1995 and was once the most used browser on the ‘World Wide Web’. 

Internet Explorer reached its peak back in 2003 after registering around 95% usage share. Due to the competition with Apple’s Safari and Google’s Chrome, the tech giant slowly started to get phased out. 

Getting replaced by Microsoft Edge, which is said to feature improved security, privacy and speed, Internet Explorer will soon become history by Wednesday 15th June as it will not longer be supported for deices on Windows 10 20H2 and alter. 

Microsoft Edge program manager Sean Lyndersay said last year that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge. It is set to have more compatibility for older legacy websites. 

Phasing out Internet Explorer was always the plan ever since the release of Microsoft Edge back in 2015. However, Edge still fails in comparison with Chrome’s widespread usage. Recent statistics show that Edge has around 171 million users compared to Chrome’s 3.2 billion. 



Russia McDonald’s replacement unveils new logo; met with mixed reactions

Russia McDonald's replacement unveils new logo; met with mixed reactions

The business which will replace McDonald’s in Russia has revealed its logo before the grand reopening on Sunday and has received a fair amount of mixed reactions.

The opening lines up with Russia Day, the day which marks the creation of the federation and will take place in Pushkin Square in Moscow, where McDonald’s opened its first Russian outlet in 1990. Over 1,000 former McDonald’s outlets will be part of Russia’s new chain as part of the recent sanctions imposed on the country as a result of its attacks on Ukraine.

The logo itself features an orange circle and two elongated, lighter orange shapes set on a green background, made to be in the shape of an M whilst also resembling two fries and a burger patty. The logo was met with a fair amount of critiques, with one drawing similarities to the Marriott hotel chain logo while another called it a mix of the Marriott logo with the flag of Bangladesh.

The chain, which was reportedly temporarily named ‘My Burger’ will develop in the coming months, with a new name to be chosen in the near future as Western companies continue to cut ties with Russia and supporters of the Ukraine attacks.
