Microsoft, a day ago, ended its support for the Internet explorer browser versions 8 through 10. Now, Microsoft Windows users are forced to use the Inteernet Explorer version 11 or the new Edge browser. It released one last patch update for IE8, IE9 and IE10, but with an "End of Life" notice, that tells it would no longer support the older versions.
If you want to play it safe with your Internet Explorer, surely upgrade it to version 11, before it is too late.
This is the last version of Internet Explorer by Microsoft. But, in spite of facing the axe, this version will continue to receive the updates for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.
This could be a move to get its users towards the newest Edge browser, which is currently available for Windows 10 only. The company has been attempting to encourage its users against its rivals such as Google Chrome.
It has been designed totally different from Internet Explorer, and promises speed and the support for Microsoft's digital assistant - Cortana.
And about half of them are using the expired versions.
This patch would feature nag box, asking users to upgrade their browsers.
