Four years ago, Microsoft had abandoned the Internet Explorer brand and enabled the new Edge browser on the Windows 10 platform to try to challenge the market position of Chrome and Firefox. Although some companies are still in IE browsers for business compatibility and other aspects, its bloated, outdated code does not support many new Web standards. Chris Jackson, a cyber security expert affiliated with Microsoft's Windows division, recently published a name called "ldquo;"Risk of using IE as your default browser” article, recommend more users to upgrade to the Edge.
While most consumers already use Chrome, Firefox, or Edge browsers, many businesses still rely on Internet Explorer to handle legacy web apps that are not yet modernized. Microsoft has tried many different ways to push companies to improve their old web applications, but IT administrators simply want to continue to use IE browsers to handle old web applications because of the simplicity and consideration of upgrade risks. program.
Jackson wrote in the blog post: “Internet Explorer is a compatibility solution. Although it works a lot, it doesn't support the new Web standards, and most of them haven't tested Internet Explore yet, and they've moved to a more modern browser. ”
The IE 10 browser is about to stop supporting, which means that many Windows users no longer receive any secure or non-secure updates, free or paid support options and online technical content. Fortunately, Microsoft is providing Windows users with the last chance to upgrade to the IE 11 browser. Although IE 10 will withdraw from support in 2020, IE 11 will continue to hold on for a while.
Maybe you will ask who is still using the IE 10 browser? The answer is for enterprise users on platforms such as Windows Server 2012 and Windows Embedded 8 Standard. Microsoft will provide upgrade services for these enterprises and organizations, and enterprise administrators can manually download the IE 11 browser through the Microsoft Update Catalog. In addition, Microsoft will also push IE 11 browser upgrades for all Windows Server 2012 and Windows Embedded 8 Standard devices by the end of this year through Windows Update and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).
Microsoft has recently issued a notice to a number of companies, requiring enterprise administrators to test upgrades in the test environment or pilot channel. Microsoft pointed out that IE11 has an enterprise model that emulates IE10 and should take into account compatibility issues. Business users who still use the IE 10 browser should expect IE 11 , which provides a smoother, faster experience.
