January 12 for Microsoft is destined to be an extraordinary day, once beloved, Windows 8 announced the end of all support, and the owner of the vast user of IE 8/9/10 also no longer get any updates from Microsoft.

The move means that Microsoft will ignore both functional bugs and security threats in the future. Perhaps they are the same caliber reply will only be, upgrade IE11 or change Win10 edge bar.

A January update shows that IE11 is indeed the world's most popular browser, market share of up to 25.57%, followed by Chrome 47 15.68%, then IE8 8.95%, IE9 6.67%, Chrome 46 5.97%, Firefox 42 5.26%, IE10 4.18%.

Another caveat is that Microsoft may keep reminding users of old IE to upgrade, especially Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 users.

In addition,Vista users cannot install IE9 above version, so IE9 is the final IE version of the system, will accompany Vista SP2 to April 11, 2017 end of the support period.
