Microsoft is pulling the plug on Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10 next Tuesday | The Verge

It is time to ditch your old version of Internet Explorer, as of January the 12th there will be no more security updates, unless you’re on a corporate contract.

Microsoft is ending support for Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10 next week on January 12th, releasing a final patch encouraging users to upgrade to one of the company’s more recent browsers. The end of support means that these older versions of Internet Explorer will no longer receive security updates or technical support, making anyone who uses them much more vulnerable to hackers. A recently-announced patch will deliver the last few bug fixes, as well as an “End of Life” notification telling users to upgrade to IE 11 or Microsoft Edge — the company’s successor to Internet Explorer, built for Windows 10.
