Microsoft Finally Killing off Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10

Microsoft has announced that from Tuesday 12 January onwards, it will no longer offer support for Internet Explorer 8, 9 or 10, so if you are still using these old relics, we would strongly advise you to stop now.

The computing giant has confirmed that it will only continue to support the latest version of Internet Explorer – Internet Explorer 11 – for now, which means that the web browser will continue to receive security updates, compatibility fixes, and technical support to ensure that it works properly with Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.

However, those of you who are using older versions of the web browser will be completely
on your own, which means that hackers can exploit security vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 to quietly install malware on your PC and then steal your data or spy on you.

But the truth is Microsoft is only supporting one version of Internet Explorer because the web browser is obsolete and really shouldn't be used any more.
