Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 No Longer Supported as of JANUARY 12

“It’s been a long time coming but, as of January 12th, Microsoft will no longer support Internet Explorer 8, 9 or 10. Rest in peace, IE [Internet Explorer Web Browser].

Microsoft points out that version 11 will continue to cling on to its dear little life for at least a while, receiving security updates, compatibility fixes, and technical support on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10. For now.

But if for some unimaginable reason you use an older version of IE, then it’ll no longer receive updates. If you insist on using a Microsoft browser, now might be time to consider using Edge?” Condliffe, J.

Insofar as many line of business applications rely on IE to be utilized, clients should check with their IT team to ensure there will not be any lapses in productivity as a result.

Most users of IE have updated their browsers to the most current version (11) to maintain the most current security settings and will continue to do so for the time-being, but will eventually need to transition when Microsoft ceases to update that browser.  Often, your line of business applications can readily use other browsers, so please connect with your strategic partners in IT such as StarPoint Advantage, to ensure a seamless transition.
