Technology giant Microsoft announced that the support of the Edge HTML-based internet browser Microsoft Edge Legacy has ended today. The company also made a warning for those who use the kiosk mode of the internet browser.
Having struggled to address users with its internet browser for years, Microsoft has recently managed to turn this bad reputation into good. What paved the way for the company to do this was the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser. Launched over a year ago, Microsoft Edge is used on millions of devices today.
So what happened to the Chromium-based version of Edge before Microsoft Edge? That browser, which is EdgeHTML-based and can be used as Microsoft Edge Legacy until now, has now completed its lifecycle. Microsoft announced last August that Edge Legacy support will end on March 9. That day, today.
Microsoft Edge Legacy said goodbye to everyone:
In a blog post shared today, Microsoft announced the end of support for Microsoft Edge Legacy. The internet browser will no longer receive any security updates from now on. However, the Microsoft Edge Legacy desktop application will be removed from the devices and replaced by the modern Microsoft Edge browser. This replacement will be with users installing the April Windows 10 update.
A warning was made by the company for those who used the ‘kiosk’ mode in Microsoft Edge Legacy. Microsoft has announced that the new Microsoft Edge must be installed and the kiosk mode must be set before the April Windows 10 update is installed in order to avoid any disruptions in the service and to use the kiosk mode.
