RIP Internet Explorer 8, 9, 10

January 31st, 2015

Internet Explorer  8, 9, 10 reached its “end of life” this month.

Internet Explorer (IE) has long been the bane of many web developers’ existence, but that may not be so for much longer.  Earlier this month Microsoft announced that they will no longer support IE 8, 9 and 10. IE’s “end of life” means the browsers will no longer receive security updates or future patches, leaving users open to unwanted vulnerabilities.

A patch update went live January 12 and nagged Internet Explorer users to upgrade to a modern browser or run the risk of being exposed to vulnerabilities.  This update adds the nag box that will appear for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 users still using the old browsers after installing the update.

This is great news for developers who still need to target older browsers for clients – not needing to worry about whether or not modern CSS (cascading style sheets) will break in these archaic browsers.
