MS to discontinue support on older IE versions

MICROSOFT HAS STARTED a countdown that will see all older versions of its Internet Explorer (IE) web browser reach end of life on 12 January 2016.

According to the Internet Explorer blog, this means that from the beginning of 2016 "only the most recent version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates".

This means that Windows Vista users will be required to use IE9, Windows Server 2012 will require IE10 and all other systems including patched versions of Windows Server 2008 and 2012 will require IE11.

The sound of IT departments taking a sharp intake of breath resonates through the land.
