That’s a little complicated. But before I explain (I hope clearly) I would agree and ask @duyluong a similar but more pointed question: how exactly does IE relate to Katalon’s saving capability?
One day, IE will be deprecated.
Edge is already de facto deprecated since MS announced Edge will soon be using chromium at its heart. (Chromium is google’s open source browser “engine”).
But why didn’t MS do the same for IE?
First, let’s be clear about terms:
- IE = Internet Explorer.
- WE = Windows Explorer.
- “Under the covers”, WE uses IE.
MS cannot overnight remove IE from Windows without significant technical impact on the OS and its supporting facilities. Worse, perhaps, IE has most of its user base inside huge corporates - MS will not do anything to upset or jeopardize that user base. It would be both financial and b2b-political suicide for MS to rock that boat.
So, moves are afoot to wrest IE-core from the OS but it will not happen overnight and due to the sensitive nature of the move, don’t expect MS to be shouting about it any time soon. That said, it will happen. One day, IE will be deprecated.
Now back to the point of all this. @duyluong …
Why is Katalon having saving issues? And by the way, it’s not just this particular issue: Katalon has had saving issues since I started using it over a year ago. I get saving issues daily.
And how does saving relate to IE? Does saving on Windows depend on IE-core in some way? (I don’t know the answer to that - it’s been a long time since I used Win32 APIs not to mention whatever the modern equivalent is.)
