Microsoft has announced that IE 8, 9 and 10 would not be supported since 12 January. This marks an end to security updates and technical support for older versions of the Microsoft’s web browser.
The company explained that security updates patch flaws that may be exploited by malware, thus helping keep users and their data safer. Microsoft reminds that regular security updates help protect you from malicious attacks, so upgrading is very important for those who care about their security. This is why Internet users are encouraged to upgrade and stay up-to-date on the latest IE version if they want a faster and more secure browsing experience.
Of course, users of newer OS from Microsoft will have no problem with the upgrade. The problem is that Internet Explorer 11 is only available for Windows 7 to 10, which leaves users of earlier versions of Windows no option but to continue to use the older versions. Microsoft has also committed to continue supporting IE 9 for users on Windows Vista, because it is the latest version available for that OS. As for users of Windows XP, they are not so lucky, which is not surprising at all, because Microsoft declared it dead almost 2 years ago.
If you use the newer operating systems from Microsoft, you can enjoy one final software update for IE 8 to 10 on 12 January. It will fix the final security flaws found in the browsers and introduce a prompt to upgrade. The tech giant strongly recommends to do so. One way or another, an unpatched flaw will eventually be found in one of the browsers, and it will make its way into malware as a matter of course.
Actually, if you have been paying attention you shouldn’t be surprised by this news – in fact, the end of life date was tentatively set about 5 months ago.

|Not use IE in years I use chrome with adblock plus|
|Who use internet explorer nowadays? nobody !|
The only utility of IE is to download FireFox or Chrome that's all, so who care about the update ...
|If these Trojan horses(Microsoft, Apple, Government...etc.) stop snooping around, trying to smell someone underpants any application should run smoothly as long as they are available to use.||
