Microsoft Edge Legacy

Edge was the default browser for Windows 10.

It was built with Microsoft's browser engine EdgeHTML and their Chakra JavaScript engine.

The first versions of Edge (12-18), are now referred to as "Edge Legacy".

Edge Legacy was not available for Windows 7 or Windows 8.

The Microsoft support for Edge Legacy ended on March 9, 2021.

Future Windows updates will replace Edge Legacy with The New Edge.


The New Edge

The new Microsoft Edge is Chromium based with Blink and V8 engines.

It was released in January 2020, and is available for Windows 7, 8, and 10.

It can also be downloaded for macOS, iOS, and Android.

The new Edge follows the Modern Lifecycle Policy (updates on an approx. six-week cycle).

Older Applications

Many older PCs (like in public libraries) are still using Internet Explorer.

Many legacy web applications are using Internet Explorer.

Many legacy web applications are using Internet Explorer runtime DLLs.

Many AJAX based applications are using Microsoft ActiveX components.

In order to ease the migration from Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge offers Internet Explorer Mode, providing backward compatibility and enabling customers to continue to run legacy web applications.


Government Recommendations

Furthermore, some governments recommends continuing to support IE11:
