Internet Explorer the Browser You Loved to Hate

Microsoft definitely does not lack self-mockery! A year ago, the firm set up a countdown to guide us towards the extermination of Internet Explorer .  Its browser now outdated and hated by all.

All supported by leading politicians, starting with the President of the Republic. But no… Never mind, we left for a ride. The Brittany region has just resubmitted a request to ICANN, with all the same 235,000 euros in application fees .
