Greetings; I recently read where IE is going to end. Right now, I can click on to the big e and get my home page no matter what it is. What will be the practice when IE is gone. As I understand it, there are options such as; Opera, Firefox 3, Google Chrome and Saffari 4.  I do have Google Chrome but when I click on that I don't have that home page layout as with Yahoo and MSN where I can navigate to the news and events. Hope you understand this.

You probably meant that Microsoft is replacing IE with a new browser codenamed "Spartan" (I hope it wasn't an obvious Halo reference...)

IE will be around for a very long time not to worry.


If you don't stand for the flag then you will fall for anything!

IE is part of Win 8 and all previous versions of Windows.  It's not going to be removed from those O/Ses.

 

There is no guarantee that any future version of Windows will have a browser known as IE...but there is no guarantee that there be that elusive thing we call "tomorrow."

You know that you can set up your favorite homepage for every web browsers? Even many at once? I once had Google Chrome set up in a way that when I would open it, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter and GeeksToGo would open all at once. You can do it too. Also, Internet Explorer will stay present on the current version of Windows and it'll be supported till the end of life. It just means that it most likely won't be updated anymore and it'll be replaced by Project Spartan.
