Microsoft will no longer be offering support on their browser versions older than 11 (penned “end of life” by Microsoft).
I Know! Shut the front door!
On January 12th, Microsoft will release a patch that will “encourage” users to upgrade their old IE browser. Since they won’t be patching these older browsers, users will open themselves up to malware issues as time goes on. This is great for developers because we know longer have to craft code to fit the internet explorer browser, rather the older versions(i.e. if IE8…). No more adjusting styles to make sure everything looks peachy. This is such a huge deal. For years, we’ve all been counting down to when this will happen. So rejoice fellow developers and designers!
