Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 to reach End of Life next Tuesday

With Windows 10, Microsoft introduced a new browser called Microsoft Edge to replace Internet Explorer. While the company is still delivering Internet Explorer 11 with Windows 10, the company does not really want users to use Internet Explorer anymore. With that being said, if you happen to be using Internet Explorer 8, 9, or 10, you will soon need to upgrade to IE11. With the next patch for the browser, Microsoft will be asking users to upgrade to Internet Explorer 11. The company will deliver the update on next Tuesday for Windows 7 computers and Windows Server 2008 R2 users — which is when IE 8, 9, and 10 will be reaching End of Life.

As the browser is reaching End of Life, it will no longer receive any updates — not even security updates. If you do not want to upgrade to IE 11, you can disable the update that requires you to upgrade to IE 11.

This is, indeed, great news for web developers who are tired of supporting old versions of Internet Explorer in modern websites. If you are still using IE 8, 9 or 10, you should probably upgrade to Internet Explorer 11 to enjoy a better browsing experience on the internet.
