Look: Internet Explorer has a gravestone in South Korea

After nearly 27 years, Internet Explorer is finally laid to rest

A gravestone has been erected in South Korea for the late Internet Explorer after Microsoft announced earlier this week that it was being sent into digital retirement.

Taking to a roof in the city of Gyueongju and placing the plaque next to one of the smallest churches man has ever seen, the memorial read: “He was a good tool to download other browsers.”

It's the end of an era for the once-popular web browser from tech giant Microsoft, Internet Explorer. After 26 years, the software program is finally laid to rest.

The company had previously announced that it would cease support for Internet Explorer on June 15, 2022, touting the supposed superiority of Edge. "Not only is Microsoft Edge a faster, more secure, and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it is also able to address a key concern: compatibility for older, legacy websites and applications," Sean Lyndersay, GM of Microsoft Edge Enterprise, wrote in a May 2021 blog post. The browser launched in 1995, and now has been replaced by Microsoft Edge. 

 
The first version of Internet Explorer was included in a Windows 95 Plus upgrade pack in 1995.
