Netizens threw a farewell party for Internet Explorer with hilarious memes when they heard that Microsoft is retiring the 27-year-old browser.
Goodbyes are difficult and for a whole generation of millennials who grew up on the internet, this Valentine's Day was sad one. Internet explorer, our first digital companion has been discontinued by Microsoft. In the past, technology has blessed us with fax machines, CD players and button phones like Blackberry. Back in the day, Internet Explorer was the perfect tool to download our favorite movies, school homework, and even other browsers. Microsoft has now pulled the plug on its once-dominant browser. And we all are reminiscing pleasant memories of navigating the internet with the help of the browser. It has a legacy of 27 years post its launch in 1995. The desktop app has ended its support for certain operating systems and will now redirect to Microsoft's Edge browser. Microsoft Edge was launched in 2015.
We bid our farewell to the browser, and now it's time to move on. Not to forget, some web users already left it because it required a lot of patience. Internet Explorer memes had been doing the rounds for a long while. Still, when netizens learned it has finally stopped working, they threw a farewell party online in honor of the browser with hilarious memes and jokes. Today, we are presenting the 25 best, most hysterical memes on Internet Explorer's demise. Keep exploring (scrolling):
