Windows 10/IE 11 future? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all.  I'm aware that Edge is the preferred built-in browser in Win 10.  But 3 years after Win 10 release I still see IE 11 kicking around. I know there are ways to remove it or use GP to disable its use, but I'm not looking to do that.  Just curious, is there a plan to remove it permanently from Win 10 builds eventually?  As of build 1809 it's still there. 

    Also, more importantly, I have to assume so, but is it still receiving security updates?  I realize to keep IE in there, MS is obviously patching it.  But at times an entirely new version of something is needed, which has been redesigned from the ground up (for better security, or what not).  Since IE 11 is still version 11 after all these years, I have to wonder if it is fundamentally flawed at this point.  Or could we say IE 11 is as secure as Edge, if we rule out zero-day exploits for either and Win 10 is fully patched?  

    Thanks!
