If you have been running Windows using internet explorer 8, 9 or 10, Microsoft has officially dropped all support for those versions from today, urging users to upgrade to Internet Explorer 11.

In a report on The Next Web, writer says they are not encouraging users to get the new Edge browser because it doesn’t yet offer third-party extensions, which many people need from their browser.

Microsoft has urged users to update their browsers to enable them have a secure connection. Ending support for these versions will mean more vulnerability to hacks and there is nothing that could be done about it.

The BBC also reported that while Microsoft has been urging users to switch to Edge or update to IE11, they might have instead pushed them to use other browsers like Google’s Chrome or Mozilla’s Firefox.

If you are running any of those versions please upgrade as soon as possible as they are no longer secure.
