    Millions of Internet Explorer users must update


    Millions of Internet Explorer users have just five weeks to upgrade to a newer browser before security patches dry up.

    Microsoft blasted a reminder to users earlier this week that after January 12 there will be no more patches to protect against drive-by downloads and other browser vulnerabilities.
    As many as 124 million users are running Internet Explorer 10 and earlier, and must update to a newer browser, according to the US Digital Analytics program.

    Most of the users are still running Internet Explorer 9, the statistics show, indicating a good portion of users still running Windows 7.

    If Vista has support lasting in 2017 then why not bring an IE11 on it or do something about IE9. Maybe will let Vista users to go look elsewhere.

    IE8 was the last version released for XP while mainstream support was still in effect. Likewise, Vista has exited mainstream support so IE 10 and 11 were released after that. So there are no new released versions for Vista. Nothing will be done for IE9, no differently than for IE8 on XP. Yet XP was used right up to 2014.
