This website needs Internet Explorer

When trying to visit a website in Edge browser you might see a “This website needs Internet Explorer. This website uses technology that will work best in Internet Explorer” message, it’s because the website requires Internet Explorer’s propriety technologies.


If you come across this message it’s best to click the option labelled Open with Internet Explorer button to open the website in question in Internet Explorer browser. That said, in some cases, if you decide to continue opening the website in Edge by clicking Keep going in link, you might not notice any difference or find an issue.

In short, when Edge browser asks you to open a webpage in Internet Explorer, it’s a good idea to open the webpage in the recommended Internet Explorer browser. Also, if a webpage is broken in Edge browser, you can quickly open the same webpage in Internet Explorer browser by clicking More actions menu (the three dots that appear just below the close button) and then clicking Open with Internet Explorer option.


Also if you have uninstalled Internet Explorer from Windows 10, you can try opening the same page in other browsers such as Chrome or Firefox.
