It is an end of an era today. hard to believe it survived for 30 years

 

https://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/thebit-nz/300613548/the-end-of-an-era-rip-internet-explorer

 

I wonder how may users that visit GZ still use IE?

I still use it, not for day to day, but for IP cameras that I cannot configure without it.

I still use it for legacy things that won't work without it (I think. from memory, Nortel phone system music managers is one)

I actually used it last week to look at something inside a dynamically-generated dropdown menu using the developer tools. Edge, Firefox and Safari all closed the menu as soon as I clicked the "inspect" button, and only IE actually let me inspect the contents!

I haven't read the Stuff article but IE11 will be alive in some versions of Windows - including servers and enterprise versions - for at least a few more years.

 

Internet Explorer 11 desktop app retirement FAQ - Microsoft Tech Community

 

 

Which platforms will be affected when the IE11 desktop application is retired and goes out of support on June 15, 2022? (Updated: June 13, 2022)

 

In scope at the time of this announcement (will be retired):

 

  • Internet Explorer 11 desktop application delivered via the Semi-Annual Channel (SAC):

     

    • Windows 10 client SKUs
    • Windows 10 IoT

Out of scope at the time of this announcement (unaffected):

 

  • Internet Explorer mode in Microsoft Edge
  • Internet Explorer platform (MSHTML/Trident), including WebOC and COM automation
  • Internet Explorer 11 desktop application on:

     

    • Windows 8.1
    • Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU)
    • Windows Server SAC (all versions)
    • Windows 10 IoT Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) (all versions)
    • Windows Server LTSC (all versions)
    • Windows 10 client LTSC (all versions)
    • Windows 10 China Government Edition

What about Windows 10 LTSC and Windows Server? (Updated: November 19, 2021)

 

In-market Windows 10 LTSC and Windows Server are out of scope (unaffected) for this change. Windows Server 2022 and Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2021 are also out of scope.

Edge is pretty good. I'd say even better than Chrome.

I haven't used it for as year or so.  We have some legacy apps running on it, but those are all running in Edge now.

rscole86: I still use it, not for day to day, but for IP cameras that I cannot configure without it.

 

For my Dahua cameras I now use SmartPSS to configure most settings and view cameras.

 

Some settings parameters still require a browser and Chrome does the job.

My Dahua cameras are fine, there was an update a couple of years ago that enabled Chrome support.

I've got an old Hikvision that I use as a baby/dog monitor, that their windows software does not fully support.

I've found all my Dahua cameras can be updated via Chromium browser but you just cannot view the video stream if they require the ActiveX plugin.

 

Otherwise just MS Edge in IE mode to configure with a live feed avaliable.
