Internet Explorer will be shutting down tomorrow, June 15. Twitter users have turned nostalgic. It is famously the butt of many jokes due to its slowness. Our earliest memories on the net are associated with Internet Explorer as no other option was available. Twitterati went on a nostalgic spree. They thanked Internet Explorer for helping users download other web browsers. Check out their tweets here:

Internet Explorer debuted on August 1995. It was one of the most famous search engines and by 1996 it was Javascript-enabled. It allowed users to view JPEGs and GIFs. The tech company spoke about Internet Explorer's retirement by saying that the future of the search engine on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge.

As per reports, Internet Explorer reached its peak in 2003 with a 95% user share. The user base fell after the release of new browsers from competitors.
