It’s here. The end of an era! Microsoft has announced that it is ending support for Internet Explorer versions 8, 9 and 10. This is a move to get consumers to change over to Microsoft Edge instead, which is a new browser by the company that is much more modern than Explorer ever was. Explorer never offered support for browser extensions, which Edge does. Edge also has a new tab page with your top pages visited, apps, and it is also compatible with Cortana, the Microsoft 10 digital assistant. Microsoft is truly coming into the modern era!
Some experts believe that as many as 340 million people still run Explorer 8, 9 or 10, despite the fact that Microsoft announced back in 2014 that it would eventually discontinue support for these versions, and getting these late adopting consumers to switch will not be an easy task. It’s a dangerous situation waiting to happen because as time moves on, these older browser versions will become more and more vulnerable to hackers, in the same way that people using Windows XP are now.
So do your old neighbors and web-dumb friends a favor and help them switch from Microsoft Explorer to Microsoft Edge as soon as you can.
There are no upcoming events.
