Finally! Internet Explorers obituary (ancient time - June 15th 2022)

Time to celebrate

While a number of services hasn't worked with Internet Explorer for a while, Microsoft finally gave us the EoL date for it.

 

While the "personalities" that haven't prepared for the inevitable likely still refuse to assess and update or replace old sh1t that require IE (or Flash for that matter), at least we can now give them a deadline they can enjoy watching pass by, then request exceptions filled with bad excuses.

More mature organizations will already have replaced IE and the (few) required exceptions written already.
