Teamgage on Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge

Teamgage on Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge

Due to their age and lack of updates, it's no longer possible to provide a secure and modern user experience via Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge Legacy.

For this reason we are now prompting users who login to Teamgage using Internet Explorer or Edge Legacy with a warning to switch to a modern browser. You will be presented with a button to open the page you are trying to access using Microsoft Edge, but you can also copy the link and paste it into your preferred browser such as Chrome or Firefox. You should also consider  switching your default browser to prevent this warning from showing up each time you follow your Teamgage link. If you need help with this please consult your IT department.

Everyone at Teamgage is driven to provide a great user experience to you and your teammates and your help in using a modern browser is greatly appreciated.

Internet Explorer

The eleventh version of IE was released 7 years ago, and a lot has changed in web technology since that time. Although Microsoft are still officially supporting IE11 until June 2022, it’s important to recognise that this is not in and of itself an endorsement to continuing to use it – in fact that the chief of security at Microsoft says IE11 shouldn’t be considered as a browser at all , rather a “compatibility solution” for legacy web applications. He goes on to recommend that IE be used in a blacklist configuration, meaning that the browser be used for a specifically listed set of legacy applications, not by default.

Microsoft’s own subsidiaries are beginning to drop support for IE, two notable example being LinkedIn from July 2020 , and Microsoft Teams from December 2020 .

Microsoft has provided multiple solutions to assist with migration, such as the IE-to-Edge redirection experience and IE Compatibility Mode , so there is no reason not to upgrade.

Microsoft Edge Legacy

To provide you with the best experience, Teamgage supports up-to-date versions of modern browsers, and so Microsoft Edge Legacy is no longer supported.

Microsoft is Sunsetting Edge Legacy and Internet Explorer 11 Browsers

In December 2018, Microsoft announced that they would be releasing a modern version of Microsoft Edge (version 78 onwards), built using the same modern components used by Google Chrome. The new Edge can be distinguished by it's revamped logo, and is a complete replacement for Microsoft Edge Legacy (version 18 or lower).

In August 2020, Microsoft announced that they would end support for Microsoft Edge Legacy . Since April 2021 Microsoft has forcibly removed Microsoft Edge Legacy from all up-to-date versions of Windows 10.

Next Steps

Teamgage recommends:

  1. Using a modern browser such as Edge, Chrome or Firefox as your default browser.
  2. Using an up to date operating system, such as Windows 10 (which has removed Edge Legacy).
  3. If you have legacy applications that require IE, configure Microsoft Edge to open them in "IE Mode" .

Alternatively, as a last resort for IT administrators:

  1. Ensure the IE-to-Edge redirection experience is enabled.
  2. Configure a network policy to ensure the domain always opens in a modern browser.
