Internet Explorer and legacy Edge browsers will be dropped in 2021. I 1st tried IE 6 with Windows XP and saw some cool features in Edge. Now MS has switched for Chormium instead

Microsoft intially used IE to push Netscape navigator out of the market. Seems that after a long road, its own products are now coming to an end.

I read about the "Browser Wars" as a kid. At the time IE had already won. Few years later Firefox was becoming a thing. I didn't care. Finally when Chrome came I switch. They brought some really cool features to the game.

Firefox is produced by Mozilla which in turn was founded by former employees of Netscape. Very interesting history.
