Time running out for Internet Explorer

Microsoft has sounded the death knell for old versions of its Internet Explorer browser, no longer providing security updates or technical support for Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10.

Microsoft has sounded the death knell for old versions of its Internet Explorer browser.

From next Tuesday (January 12), the software giant will no longer provide security updates or technical support for Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10, leaving users vulnerable to malware and security threats.

Internet Explorer 11 will continue to be supported. Microsoft users will have to upgrade either to that – the last version of the beleaguered IE – or to its new-generation browser, Microsoft Edge, which comes as part of the new Windows 10 package.

The browser has been under pressure for a long time from a host of competitors such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

An ‘end of life’ notification will pop up on users’ screens from Tuesday, with further information on how to upgrade.
