End of support: easy­square discontinues support and development for Internet Explorer

easy­square will support Internet Explorer for the web app until the end of December 2020. From 1 January 2021 onwards, another HTML5-capable browser such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Safari will be required for further use.

Because we want to continue providing our customers using the web app with the best possible version with effective functions, we would like to share the following today:

Starting on 1 January 2021, use of the web app with Internet Explorer will no longer be supported. The following browsers will be supported as usual from next year onward:

  • Google Chrome, current version and mobile (Android)
  • Mozilla Firefox, current version
  • Safari, current version and mobile (iPhone, iPad)
  • Microsoft Edge from version 83

Why are we no longer supporting Internet Explorer?

Microsoft is gradually discontinuing support for Internet Explorer and advising its customers to use Microsoft Edge as a standard browser instead. In the coming year the company will also cease development of its own Microsoft 365 web applications for Internet Explorer. We saw this as a good reason to scrutinise our own easy­square web app’s support for Internet Explorer.

For some time now, Internet Explorer has created significant challenges for web developers. Many new features have to be separately developed for Internet Explorer. This effort is set against less than satisfactory results in terms of user experience and performance due to the general capability of Internet Explorer. After considering this along with the fact that a high-quality alternative is already available in Microsoft Edge, we have decided to discontinue development and support for Internet Explorer.

The cessation of development and support on 1 January 2021 does not mean that the current easy­square web app versions 5.2 to 6.12 will no longer be available after this date, however. Only after switching their URL to version 6.13 (to be released on 7 January 2021) will users automatically be prompted to use a different browser.

The easy­square support team will gladly answer any questions you may have.
