For those using older versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, it is time to move on and upgrade them to the latest version, the Internet Explorer 11. Microsoft is officially rolling out all its support from any versions prior to IE 11.
Microsoft has issued a fresh statement for all Internet Explorer users to upgrade their web browsers to the latest edition, which is the Internet Explorer 11, since support of any kind will no longer be provided for the earlier versions. Internet Explorer 8,9 and 10 are going to hit a dead-end on the 12th of January, 2016 and would no longer be supported by Microsoft. This will mean that these browsers would be prone to internet threats including various types of malware and unpatched vulnerabilities. This makes them extremely unsecure to use and installing the latest version a complete necessity.
Microsoft will implement a nag screen in all the older versions of the Internet Explorer web browsers asking the users to update to the latest version. Folks running Windows 7,8 and 10 would be notified to upgrade their browsers to Internet Explorer 11, while Windows 10 users will also be encouraged to switch to the Edge browser. So if you have ignored all the update notifications from Microsoft regarding Internet Explorer, now would be the best time to respond; lest you want to fall prey to the numerous security risks involved.
