Internet Explorer Memes

Internet Explorer Set To Close - Here Are The Best IE Memes

The Debrief: Oh IE, you're not the fastest, but you hosted all our MSN conversations...

Since 1995, Internet Explorer has been there for us with varying degrees of success - but now Microsoft have announced it'll be phasing out the browser, and replacing it with an as yet unnamed replacement built into Windows 10. Once the go-to way to 'surf the internet' (remember when people said 'surf the internet), it was riddled with issues that provoked hundreds of memes and disgruntled internet users reporting loss of work, slow loading and general shitness. Firefox pretty much sounded the IE death knell, but that doesn't mean we don't still sort of love it in a nostalgic way. It housed many an MSN flirtation, MySpace profile stalking session and does anyone else remember That was a great site. That was generally accessed via Internet Explorer. 

Here are the best memes in celebration of the mighty IE - because the best way to say goodbye to a browser is to gently mock it via photoshopped images.
