EL Microsoft decided to end the support Internet Explorer since last Wednesday, June 15, after causing various government and commercial structures in Japan to be plagued by functional problems.
The reason is that, despite being very little used around the world, the Japan it still has many platforms that have not migrated to other programs and that continued to force employees to use Internet Explorer for various functions critical to the smooth running of businesses.
Websites optimized for Internet Explorer were not ready for change

The company claims that the end of Microsoft browser support has long been known, but the companies were postponing the steps to be taken until the day came and did not have the full migration of the systems.
This delay caused several services to start failing in their normal operation, a situation that should continue for a few months, according to the specialist company.
Microsoft launched Internet Explorer 27 years ago, and while many users had long since migrated to other alternatives, there was still about 49% of users recognize its usefulness in the work context.
The browser in question was used for more than just opening websites. It was through this that many companies controlled the attendance of their employees as well as the platform used to communicate with other internal work tools.
