Internet Explorer browser no longer recommended

If you are using Internet Explorer 11, we recommend the use of modern browsers such as Chrome, Edge, or Firefox instead.IE11 is the last supported version of Internet Explorer that is currently available from Microsoft. Its release date was October 13, 2013, and Microsoft will begin withdrawing support for it next month. It does not support modern web standards and because of this, you may see some functionality in IE11 is limited or not working correctly.
