Adario Strange says, “Microsoft’s beleaguered web browser gets its fair share of critique from frustrated users, but it seems just as many Windows users love the browser, including actress Zooey Deschanel.

Upon hearing news that the browser may be shelved in favor of the as yet unnamed Windows 10 browser, currently codenamed Project Spartan, Deschanel took to Facebook with an emoji mourning IE’s apparent end. The story Deschanel referenced, however, talks about the rise of Microsoft’s new browser — at the time the company had not confirmed IE’s end.

The confusion began when Microsoft’s Chris Capossela made comments at the Microsoft Convergence event on Monday reportedly indicating that Internet Explorer was effectively dead”.

Not so fast: Internet Explorer isn’t dead just yet
