    Microsoft ditches Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10, will only support version 11

    Microsoft will no longer support versions 8, 9, and 10 of Internet Explorer.
    Microsoft is officially pulling the plug on older versions of its infamous Internet Explorer web browser.
    Versions 8, 9 and 10 of the browser will no longer receive support from the Windows 10 maker starting next Tuesday, Jan. 12. Only the most current version of Internet Explorer will still operate, which is version 11.
    Internet Explorer 11 will continue to receive security updates, compatibility fixes and technical support.
    Microsoft suggests Internet Explorer users update their browser or they will risk compromising their privacy online and being attacked by hackers.
    "Security updates patch vulnerabilities that may be exploited by malware, helping to keep users and their data safer," Microsoft said on its website. "Regular security updates help protect computers from malicious attacks, so upgrading and staying current is important."
    Microsoft also rolled out a new "End of Life" patch that notifies users to upgrade to either version 11 or Microsoft Edge, its latest Internet browser.
    Users with old version can either go to Microsoft's website to download a new version, or follow on-screen instructions whenever they are notified to upgrade.
    Edge was introduced in July as an improved, faster version of Internet Explorer. The Edge browser has an array of new features such as Cortana support, note-taking, doodling and instant screen sharing.

    Solve your problems. Switch to Chrome/Firefox and get away from Internet Exploder. At least Chrome tests its security patches before barfing them out on the public.

    Fuck em. I have 8, I don't even want to go to 8.1. I would love to go back to Win 7, but this is the way my computer came configured. There is no IE 11 for just 8 only 8.1. So fuck em, I'll continue to just use FF and Chrome.

    only problem with Chrome is that shit eats up system memory like a hog. Uses more RAM than the other browsers...it's probably all of Googles tracking tools :stalk:
