Someone made a tombstone to mark the end of Internet Explorer support

When Microsoft effectively came out for Internet Explorer earlier this week, one person decided to celebrate the occasion with a bit of humor. Per , software Jung Ki-young has spent 430,000 (about $330) to design and order a headstone for the web browser before the official end date of support. Located on the roof of his brother’s cafe in the South Korean city of Gyeongju, the memorial features IE’s iconic logo, followed by an English epitaph that reads: “He was a great resource for downloading other browsers.” .”

Jung told Reuters he commissioned the monument to commemorate a program that shaped his career. Even as apps like Chrome and Firefox started to replace Internet Explorer in both fame and popularity, many of Jung’s customers kept asking him to make sure their websites looked good in Microsoft’s outdated web browser. “It was painful, but I would call it a love-hate relationship because Explorer itself once dominated an era,” he said.

As funny as the headstone is, it may be premature. Microsoft still plans to support Internet Explorer in some contexts. For example, Edge’s IE mode will continue to work until 2029 or later. In addition, parts of the world, including countries like , continue to use the web browser for business and government administrations.
