Anyone who develops on the web, or even uses the web on the previous Internet Explorer application will know that it has been slacking for some time now.ut finally Microsoft has advised users to move to the latest version of Internet Explorer
But finally Microsoft has advised users to move to the latest version of Internet Explorer 11, after announcing that it will end support for Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 from next week, kicking off on January 12th.
Here’s what they said in their statement.
Beginning January 12, 2016, only the most current version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical supports and security updates. Internet Explorer 11 is the last version of Internet Explorer, and will continue to receive security updates, compatibility fixes, and technical support on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.
Whilst this may not seem great for the consumer on first look, it’s actually something that Microsoft should have done a long time ago, with many websites already disabling their own support for the old versions.
Once Microsoft does the same they will no longer push updates for the old internet browser, meaning that anyone who uses it will be stuck with an insecure browser, many are hoping that this will get many to switch to a newer version of Internet Explorer, or even a completely different one, we heard Chrome is pretty good.
