Microsoft has just revealed that effective January 12, 2016, it will no longer provide security updates or offer any technical supports for older versions of its Internet Explorer browser; and this means any IE older than Internet Explorer 11 will be officially rested, even though users can still continue with them at their own risks.

Internet Explorer 11 is the latest and most current version of Internet Explorer, and this will continue to have security updates and receive technical supports but no other IE beyond this. To this extent, IE 11 will still have compatibility fixes, security updates, and other technical support for computers operating on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

It must be pointed out that IE 11 is most suitable for web standards powering today’s websites and services, and has enhanced performance and security with better backward compatibility.

Microsoft advises that customers quickly upgrade their older version IE to the latest one in order to continue to receive updates, supports, and experience a more immersive, faster and secured browser.

Upgrading to a new browser is all the more important because hackers may exploit certain vulnerabilities in older Internet Explorer versions; but the latest Internet Explorer 11 will be better protected and keep users and their data safer.
