Support for IE 9, 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I’m trying to assess the browser situation with respect to Microsoft.

    I need to provide input to my management about the browsers to be supported in future.

    Came across some information on MS site which I’m pasting below.

    What I’m trying to understand is that from Jan-12, 2016, will Internet Explorer 9 & 10 not be supported on Windows 7?

    Pasted below is an extract from site:

    “Beginning January 12, 2016, only the most current version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates.”


    And the oldest they’ll support for Windows Desktop OS is IE9 on Vista SP2; for Windows 7 SP1 it’ll be IE11.

    Their guideline:


    Windows Platform

    Internet Explorer Version

    Windows Vista SP2

    Internet Explorer 9

    Windows Server 2008 SP2

    Internet Explorer 9

    Windows 7 SP1

    Internet Explorer 11

    Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

    Internet Explorer 11

    Windows 8.1

    Internet Explorer 11

    Windows Server 2012

    Internet Explorer 10

    Windows Server 2012 R2

    Internet Explorer 11

    Correct!

    (in the blog article, directly below the table which you've sampled, is a paragraph which exactly answers your question)

    After January 12, 2016, only the most recent version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates. For example, customers using Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9, or Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 SP1 should migrate to Internet Explorer 11 to continue receiving security updates and technical support. For more details regarding support timelines on Windows and Windows Embedded, see the Microsoft Support Lifecycle site.

    Good article.  But it should also be pointed out what can be seen by doing a Find (e.g. Ctrl-F) in it for  Enterprise Mode.    <eg>
