Microsoft is ending support for all versions of the Internet Explorer browser except for current version 11.
Microsoft says an “end of life” upgrade notification for Internet Explorer that will pop up January 12. The notification will warn people still running IE 8, 9 and 10 that their time is up and urge them to upgrade to the latest version of the browser.
The move doesn’t mean older versions of IE will disappear from your PC.
It does mean no more bug fixes, updates or other patches will be released, leaving those editions vulnerable to malware and other security threats.
Internet Explorer has been losing steam in the past few years, while newcomer Chrome has surged.
Ending support for the older versions of Internet Explorer is a way to try and persuade people to newer versions of Microsoft’s operating system that support IE 11, like Windows 10.
