Hurray! “End of Life” for Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 this Tuesday

Written by Deepak

Finally Microsoft made it clear that they are officially ending their support for Internet Explorer from January 12, 2016.

In an announcement made on Microsoft Windows support website, Microsoft made it clear that they are releasing a patch on January 12, 2016, which will show a notification to users asking them to upgrade their browsers to Internet Explorer 11.
The update is labelled as KB3123303 and affects people using Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 as these are the last machines which use Internet Explorer versions lower than IE11.

End of life means that these browsers won’t be getting any new security updates or patches for vulnerabilities in future and will be open to attacks.

Though, if you can’t update your browser due to technology limitations, Microsoft has shared a registry fix, which allows you to disable this Browser Upgrade notifications from your system.

It is good news and will be highly welcomed by developers and designers all across as previously they had to provide browser support for developing websites and also had limitations for using latest CSS3 properties and HTML5 features.

This news leaves Internet Explorer 11 as the last browser that will be getting support from the company and next versions will focus on Edge browser.
