Internet Explorer will be removed on June 15 and Twitter is nostalgic. The search engine has not been used for a long time and is famous for being the source of several jokes about its slowness. However, it is linked to many of our early memories of the Internet, when Internet Explorer was the only option available. Internet Explorer, or IE, will be retired and support will expire today for some versions of Windows 10.

Microsoft said last year that the new Edge browser, the successor to Internet Explorer, will have compatibility mode for legacy websites and apps that still require core Internet Explorer functionality to function.

Here are some tweets that will make you nostalgic:

Internet Explorer made its debut in August 1995. It quickly became the most popular search engine in 1996 because it supported Javascript and allowed users to view JPEG and GIF files. Edge, Microsoft’s alternative, was built on Chromium, the same platform as Google Chrome.
