Legacy Internet Explorer Support Ending

Released this morning by Microsoft on their IEBlog, it has been officially announced that old versions of Internet Explorer will no longer be supported as of January 12, 2016. Microsoft is well known for long term support on their operating system releases. Windows XP was supported until just earlier this year in fact. Windows Vista support is scheduled to continue though April 2017, and there are already 2 other newer versions of Windows available, 7 and 8, and Windows 9 is just around the corner. 

Microsoft has published a handy chart detailing the most current versions of Internet Explorer for all of their currently supported operating systems. If you are not running one of these versions, you won't be getting support. This means important security updates may be missed unless you upgragde. For most users upgrading should be a regular practice, staying up to date is important, but some businesses run legacy web based applications that may not be compatible with newer IE versions, at least not without serious cost in rewriting that software.

As posted on the Microsoft IE blog "After January 12, 2016, only the most recent version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates. For example, customers using Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9, or Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 SP1 should migrate to Internet Explorer 11 to continue receiving security updates and technical support." The full blog post can be found here.

EVDOinfo recommends using alternative browsers like Firefox or Chrome to begin with, but if you are an IE user this could be a major change.
