Internet Explorer ends, Firefox boosts privacy protections, and Netflix opens casting for new show
It’s the end of the line for Internet Explorer. After more than 26 years, Microsoft is essentially ending support for the browser. It peaked at 95 percent usage share in 2003. The company will push users towards Microsoft Edge over the coming months.
Firefox is boosting its privacy protection against online tracking. The browser is planning to give what’s being called "Total cookie protection" to all users by default. The feature would limit the ability of websites to read cookies created by third-party services.
Netflix has opened casting for "Squid Game: The Challenge". It’s a real life competition based on the hit show, in which contestants risk death in order to pay off debts. Contestants for the reality series will compete for a prize of over 4.5 million dollars.
