After 25 years of being the butt of all jokes, Internet Explorer will finally be retired by Microsoft, ending an era of memes directed at the notoriously slow browser.

According to Microsoft, Internet Explorer is being retired in favor of Microsoft Edge, the more reliable and secure successor to Internet Explorer (that won't crash if you have more than one tab open). Internet Explorer will officially stop being supported by Microsoft by June 15, 2022, and Internet Explorer-based websites, which apparently still exist in 2021, will have until 2029 to work with Edge.

Nowadays, most users prefer Google's Chrome browser, which occupies 65 percent of the market, followed by Safari, at 19 percent. Firefox and Edge come in third and fourth at 3.59 percent and 3.39 percent, respectively, leaving Explorer behind in the dust.

It's an end of an era for the Internet, which has loved to pick on Explorer's snail speed. Farewell, IE. Thanks for letting us download Chrome. 

Here are the best farewell memes dedicated to IE:
