Internet Explorer Set To Retire; Netizens Pay Tribute In Memes
It’s the end of an era, ladies and gentlemen! After maddening generations of internet users with its bugs, glitches, and painfully slow speed, Internet Explorer is finally retiring. The veteran browswer will be officially out of commission on June 15, 2022, and the torch will pass to Microsoft Edge. Despite its innate flaws, however, Internet Explorer was the OG browser for many of us who grew up with Hi5 and Hotmail.

So, here’s a meme fueled farewell to the browser that was forever late and lagging, and yet, brave enough to ask if it could become our default browser. You will be missed old friend!
