When Will IE8 Support End?

Posted on by Ryan

Microsoft announced via Internet Explorer Team Blog that support for Internet Explorer 8, their most popular browser now, will officially end January 12, 2016. Director of Internet Explorer Roger Capriotti had this to say…

“After January 12, 2016, only the most recent version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates. For example, customers using Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9, or Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 SP1 should migrate to Internet Explorer 11 to continue receiving security updates and technical support.”

Microsoft will continue to support Internet Explorer 9 and above, even on older operating systems like Windows Vista, after January 12.
