Quote from: jrp2706 on September 08, 2023, 01:51:54 AMI am a new user and am very surprised that PatchMyPC still uses Internet Explorer at all.
Surely by now you should be respecting the users browser preference or at least using Edge (& not Egde's IE emulation).
See also Wikipedia note re Windows 11 and beyond which I assume is true:
On May 19, 2021, Microsoft announced that Internet Explorer will be no longer supported on June 15, 2022[a] and as part of transition, IE mode will be available on the new Microsoft Edge which allows launch older ActiveX controls and legacy websites until at least 2029. Windows 11 removed Internet Explorer, although it was disabled and some of its files are still stored in Windows' Program Files folder. Users that are trying to run iexplore.exe via Run command will be redirected to Microsoft Edge. Additionally, if it is run for the first time since the release of Edge Chromium, IE11 will now open a new tab that redirects to Edge's website, with a notice that "some websites no longer support Internet Explorer". Internet Explorer is also disabled on Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel after installing February 14, 2023 security update, and visual references of the browser will be removed on June 13, 2023.
I personally prefer the Chromium based Brave browser for its enhanced Privacy features.
I am interested in your thoughts on getting rid of IE at last.
