Microsoft confirms that Microsoft Edge browser will support Windows 7 until July 15, 2021
Because Windows 7 has now ended its life cycle, Microsoft no longer provides updates to the system, but many users still use this version today.
It is also true that after Microsoft launched Microsoft Edge-based Chromium, Microsoft still released an adapted browser for Windows 7. Of course, the purpose of this may be to gain more market share.
However, most browsers will gradually abandon the unsupported Windows 7 system, and Microsoft is no exception. The company decided to support it until July 15, 2021.
End of support means that after the expiration, Microsoft will no longer release a new version of Microsoft Edge for Windows 7, and users can only use the unsafe old version.
The same is that Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 version is no longer supported, users need to upgrade to at least Windows 8.1/Server 2012
End of support does not mean that users can not continue to use, but users cannot upgrade the new version, only use the old version may have security vulnerabilities, etc.
