This category of users can use enterprise mode (Enterprise Mode) Internet Explorer 11, which provides compatibility with web apps written for previous versions of the browser.
Looking to the future, not forgetting about the needs and habits of users, Microsoft has achieved a good level of integration between the Edge and regarding IE 11 enterprise mode: any site in the site list Enterprise Mode when you visit via Edge automatically opens in Internet Explorer 11. The transition between «new» and «old» (and Vice versa) is very painless; Microsoft Edge can be set as your default browser, while IE will run only if necessary.
Administrators of corporate networks can choose whether to use an existing site list Enterprise mode or create a new Microsoft Edge. Any resource on the intranet can also be automatically opened in Internet Explorer 11, if the user tries to access it via Edge.
The coexistence of the two browsers is an advantage to home users, although to a lesser degree. For example, a switching mechanism between Edge and Internet Explorer can be used to browse web sites that do not work in Edge (for example, sites based on Silverlight).
