Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 Finally Die Next Week

Illustration for article titled Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 Finally Die Next Week

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.

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?

Wow - kind of snuck up on us didn’t it?

What’s odd is that for me, Edge doesn’t feel like a fully fleshed out product. I don’t have my work PC with me, but in testing I have seen multiple rendering and capability problems with Edge that IE11 doesn’t exhibit, even within Office 365.
