Microsoft confirms that Internet Explorer will no longer receive support, When will this happen?
When Microsoft announced that it would end support for Windows XP, we all saw how almost everyone´s world got turned upside down. Well, it looks like the same thing is going to happen for those who use Internet Explorer 8 since Microsoft has already announced that it is going to eliminate support for IE8.
When the end of the support for Internet Explorer 8 comes, Microsoft will no longer launch patches and the company knows that chaos will run loose since over 20% still user IE8 but the end has to come sometime.
If you use Internet Explorer 8, you don´t need to start panicking know since the end will come in 2016 but you will need to migrate at some point. When that time comes, if you want to continue receiving updates, you will need to be using Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7.
It would be a good idea to start thinking if now is a good time to start updating everything before 2016 since sooner or later Internet Explorer 8 will be completely obsolete.
