Tech News: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, has promised to track down the last remaining user of web browser Internet Explorer so he can apologise to them personally.

“When I find out who they are I will visit them in person,” said Nadella. “I will sit down with them and offer a heartfelt apology. Since 1995 Internet Explorer has been our baby and like a lot of things from 1995 – for example the music of The Dandy Warhols and the movie Batman Forever – it hasn’t aged well.”

Nadella announced the apology after the German government urged users to not use Explorer due to security flaws and a general stink of shit about the browser.

It’s the second warning the German government has issued against Internet Explorer – in 2010 it issued the same warning after a senior politician hung himself when the browser gave him multiple ‘unexpected error’ messages while trying to upload a single photo to Facebook.
