If you’re running an older version of Windows you should know that today is the latest day of support for some versions of Internet Explorer. Actually, everything except the latest version of IE otherwise known as IE 11, are formally dead.
Microsoft reported a week ago that it was ending support for Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 which have been on the market for quite a while now. Actually the three versions of the browser combine to shape about 20% of the whole market as indicated by Net Applications, while a recent industry reviews recommend more than 60% of US-based SMBs use one the soon to be unsupported versions of IE.
Users running Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 will get one last fix today, which will notify the user about the absence of support and prompt him to upgrade to a newer version of the browser.
Internet Explorer 11 will be the last version of IE in wide circulation, as Microsoft is pushing people towards Windows 10 and its new Edge browser. The organization justifies the move and the push for users to embrace newer browsers refering to the enhanced security, backwards compatibility and the general enhanced experience with these most recent versions of IE and Edge.
