“Internet Explorer was one of our earliest portals to this wondrous new digital reality,” says Powai-based Sahil Vaidya, on learning about American tech giant Microsoft retiring Internet Explorer, which breathed its last on June 15. Vaidya remembers getting access to the browser as a 7-8-year-old and since the Internet had just started reaching people around the world, Internet Explorer was the only browser at the time for everybody. “I fondly remember being excited about accessing Cartoon Network’s website and all the possibilities of playing games on the Internet,” adds the 28-year-old.
