Internet Explorer is dead and represents a past that is not too exciting for Microsoft when it comes to web browsing. From 15 June, therefore, an important step has been added to Microsoft’s strategy to modernize a fundamental aspect of its OSes.
Internet Explorer is dead: Edge is Microsoft’s only browser in the future
Specifically Lyndersay has performed that confirms the web browser, no longer on some versions of Windows, will be “permanently disabled” through an OS update that will come in the future. Below is the comment in full, as reported by BleepingComputer:
“Users will still see the Internet Explorer icon on their devices (for example on the taskbar or Start menu), but clicking to open Internet Explorer will launch Microsoft Edge with the ability to easily access IE mode. Internet Explorer will eventually be completely disabled permanently through a future Windows Update, at which point the Internet Explorer icons on users’ devices will be removed. “
Internet Explorer is dead: Edge is Microsoft’s only browser in the future During this time, user data (including settings, favorites and passwords) will be transferred to Microsoft Edge. Microsoft will also add a “Reload with IE mode” button to the Edge toolbar to make it easier for users to run sites and services that are not compliant with the new standards. On the other hand, from 2020 those who try to run incompatible websites with Internet Explorer (there are almost 1500 certified incompatible websites, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google Drive) are automatically redirected to Edge.
On June 15, Internet Explorer ended its life cycle within the Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel (SAC). The application was not already available on Windows 11 and the most popular versions of Windows 10, but it was in the SAC channel Windows 10 and still is on Windows 7 ESU, Windows 8.1 and all versions of Windows 10 LTSC, IoT and Server. On these operating systems, even if no longer supported, IE will continue to receive critical security updates until support ends for the version of Windows it runs on.
World Refugee Day is an international day organised every year on 20 June by the United Nations. It is designed to celebrate and honour refugees from around the world. The day was first established on 20 June 2001, in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees.
The event aims to recognise the strength of the refugees who have fled the conflict and persecution of their country in hope of finding sanctuary and living a better life. World Refugee Day builds the concept of understanding for their plight which shows one’s resilience and courage in the rebuilding of their future.
The day is an opportunity for everyone to experience, understand and celebrate the rich diversity of the communities of refugees. Events such as theatre, dance, films, and music aim to allow refugee community organisations, voluntary and statutory organisations, local councils, and schools to host events during the week in order to honour the cause.
World Refugee Day is also celebrated through World Refugee Week and is designed to provide an important chance for asylum seekers and refugees to be seen, listened to and valued by the community that they are living in.
A refugee is an individual who leaves their country due to the ramifications of war, conflict persecutions and violence that they have faced within their home country. Through undertaking the process of crossing international borders, some refugees are often found to leave everything behind carrying only the minimal clothing and possessions; with the plan to find safety and haven in a different country.
The 1951 Refugee Convention acknowledges a refugee as an individual who is unable to return to their country of origin owing to the founded fear of being affected by their race, religion, participation of a social group or in different political opinions.
Refugees play a role in the globe as when they are positioned to have access to the legal employment opportunities in their host country, they are able to utilises their knowledge to assist in filling the gap of a country’s labour market. These inclusions in society create a more diverse in culture and multiculturalisation which provides the community with the opportunity to learn from each other.
Majority of the refugees come from backgrounds where they have been formally employed and can assist their new country in contributing to the security of the country as well as their revenue. Through having refugees in a country, the hosts also need to prepare for an increase in the cost of services such as access to healthcare of education which is provided by the government. They are also able to create the ability to contribute to society by acting as a mediator in different intercultural exchanges, this means that the country will be able to experience a more effective socio-cultural diversity within the community.
On 4 December 2000, the United Nations General Assembly in Resolution 55/76 acknowledged that, 2001 and onwards, 20 June would be celebrated as World Refugee Day. The resolution saw that 2001 marked the 50th anniversary of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. The convention had commemorated refugees to honour, raise awareness and solicit support to those affected around the globe.
African Refugee Day had been formally celebrated in several countries prior to 2000. The UN noted that the Organization of African Unity (OAU) had agreed to have International Refugee Day coincide with Africa Refugee Day on 20 June.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees started the #WithRefugees petition to send a message to the people of the action, solidarity, and responsibility on behalf of refugees to governments worldwide. There have been projects and resources that have been put into place which aims to spread the word to educate people about the way of life for refugees. The United Nations works along with the community to try to end the refugee crisis and find homes for displaced people worldwide.
In 1967, the United Nations had expanded the number of people who would apply for a refugee status because of the acts of the 1951 Convention which had defined a refugee as an individual or person who had been forced to flee their homes because of World War II. This came to be known as the 1967 Protocol. The protocol at the time had removed the time limitations and geographical definitions of what it meant to be a refugee.

The weather took a hard left turn last week. We had mornings in the 40’s and mid-day temps of low 60’s. That’s rather cold for June, but the plants don’t seem to mind. Trees and shrubs are growing, berries are doing well, and the flowers are blooming. It’s pretty out there. Asiatic Lily Knockout Roses […]
Deze felrode verschijning is de Zwartkopvuurkever (Pyrochroa coccinea). De naamgeving spreekt hier wel voor zich denk ik. Hij vliegt van April tot juni. Niet te verwarren met de Vermiljoenkever (Cucujus cinnaberinus) die een rode kop heeft. We vinden hem vaak op open plekken in het bos en langs bosranden op bloemen en oude boomstammen (hier […]
My photos this week were all taken around the pond at William Land Park in the early evening. It was warm outside and I learned the lotus flowers I wanted to capture only open early in the morning and are closed by mid-afternoon. I had the intention of returning later in the week to try […]
