GoodHabitz stops supporting Internet Explorer 11 (IE11)

Microsoft has announced that they will stop supporting Internet Explorer 11 on most Windows computers in the first part of 2022. This means that no updates will be made to the Internet Explorer browser, causing the user experience of hundreds of thousands of programs, including GoodHabitz, to not perform its best when used in Internet Explorer.

Statements Microsoft about Internet Explorer

Microsoft published several statements about discontinuing IE11, including, "Internet Explorer (IE) 11 is the last major version of Internet Explorer. As of June 15, 2022, the desktop application Internet Explorer 11 will no longer be supported on certain versions of Windows 10."

In addition, Microsoft gives the recommendation to use their new browser Microsoft Edge. As per their Blog, "We are announcing that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 lies in Microsoft Edge. Microsoft Edge is not only faster, more secure, and more modern than Internet Explorer, but it also provides a solution to a major problem: the compatibility of older websites and applications."

Making learning as fun as watching your favourite series

Providing quality and the ultimate user experience is very important to the GoodHabitz online learning platform. Can learning be as fun as watching your favourite series on Netflix? At GoodHabitz, we think so. To achieve this mission with our students, a very good user experience is crucial. Unfortunately, Microsoft Internet Explorer will soon not be able to provide that quality in user experience anymore.

Updating our product in a browser that will soon no longer be at its best doesn’t make sense for us to continue. It has therefore been decided that as of November 1, 2021, GoodHabitz will no longer be supported on Internet Explorer 11.  GoodHabitz is, of course, still available and usable through IE11 in October. But moving forward, we just can't provide the user experience as we do through other internet browsers.

Now what? We are here to help you! Microsoft (the parent company of IE11) therefore recommends that users of Internet Explorer 11 switch to Microsoft Edge. Are you not working with Microsoft Edge yet? No problem. GoodHabitz will of course continue to update for other browsers such as Safari, Google Chrome, and Firefox. In fact, we would highly recommend using Google Chrome for the best GoodHabitz experience.

Our support team is also available should you have any questions about the phase-out of Internet Explorer 11.
