I would love this to be true but unless Windows 10 now automatically comes with Edge, IE11 will need to be a fallback, we could all slowly add messages to our sites with links to firefox, chrome and edge to get people to download.

I love to drop IE11 however I have clients who still have users using it and to them that money.

i dont understand. Edge is the default browser... and they're shipping Chromium Edge with IE11 compatibility via Windows Update.

I might be mistaken, but when you install windows 10 you get ie11 by default, has microsoft completely changed that via an update and would that be all windows 10 users?

Its underway, but in stages. Msft rolled it out to Release Preview insiders in Feb (gadgets.ndtv.com/apps/news/microso...). The next step is Home and Pro users, planned this summer. zdnet.com/article/microsoft-kicks-... It seems this does not affect Enterprise/Education customers though :(
