  • Positive – Five reasons the death of Internet Explorer matters
    way since then And that s why on 12 January 2016 Microsoft ended support for older versions of IE The last version of the browser will be IE11 as Microsoft moves to Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 So what does this mean for those that manage websites Your security is at risk if you don t upgrade The biggest risk of not upgrading your browser to a newer version is security because there will be no security updates made to the old retired versions of IE This will mean you could become vulnerable to malicious software if you continue to use these older versions I expect to see big companies drop support for them very quickly There will no longer be a support network for older versions Microsoft themselves take advantage of HTML 5 in their office 365 product and state it works best with modern browsers If you stick with an old version of IE you may find yourself gradually excluded from the tools and services you use online Websites will need to be tested in IE11 and Edge Most home users will have automatic updates and antivirus set up on their PC If they don t have automatic updates their antivirus will warn them that they are using an unsecure unsupported browser If your website audience is home PC users they will mostly quickly update This means you ll need to test in IE11 and Edge if you aren t now Organisations can provide better online experiences YouTube one of the world s most visited websites doesn t work in IE8 The increase in mobile use has pushed modern browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox to set higher expectations for web users This upgrade will allow web owners to embrace modern web technologies such as HTML 5
