It is time to update your Internet Explorer and ditch IE 8, 9 or 10.

How long have you used Internet Explorer 8, 9, or 10 on your computer? Have you ever thought about abandoning these ole versions of Internet Explorer? If you are the user of any version of them, you’d better upgrade your explorer as soon as possible. It is said that Microsoft will give up Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10, and no more supports for these versions starting next week. If you are still using any of these outdated versions, it is time to ditch.

According to resources online, Microsoft is gonna end support for Internet Explorer 8 to 10 on 12th January this year. Once the explorer lost the support, it will be vulnerable and these three versions of browsers will no longer receive bug fixes and security updates, which makes your browser easy to attack. Considering the security of yourself, you may need to uninstall the useless App and get the latest one.

Microsoft has been working on ending service for these outdated browsers since last year. Yet considering the huge users who are using the ole versions, the company didn’t make a clear deadline before. However, now Microsoft has released more browsers like IE 11 and the Windows 10 browser, Edge, it is naturally to stop supporting the old ones and lead more users to the new browsers.

New things replace the old ones, which may be inevitable in the technology field. Even thought there are a large number of users who used to run the outdated browsers, Microsoft announced that its Windows 10 is really a huge hit, and already enjoy 200 million devices that are running Windows 10 around the world, that might also show the new browser of Windows 10 enjoying great popularity on these 200 million active devices. To keep up with the trend, you may need to ditch the old browsers and get a new one to make sure your security is guaranteed.
