Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10 Scheduled to Die

internet explorer

Effective January 12th, Microsoft will no longer support Internet Explorer 8, 9, or 10. This will leave Internet Explorer users with just version 11, with an option to use the new Edge browser that was introduced with Windows 10.

It means you should take action. After January 12, 2016, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for older versions of Internet Explorer. Security updates patch vulnerabilities that may be exploited by malware, helping to keep users and their data safer. Regular security updates help protect computers from malicious attacks, so upgrading and staying current is important.

Microsoft has an notice posted here, and you can read more about Edge here.
