The End Is Nigh For Older Versions Of Internet Explorer

Microsoft is pretty aggressively steering users to make sure they are using the current version of the Internet Explorer (IE) web browser. After January 2016, support for IE 7 and IE 8 (on any version of Windows) will cease; no more patches or security updates. For many home users, this will hopefully not be an issue; by default Windows will install updates as they are available, and so most should have the current version of Internet Explorer already installed - currently IE 11 for both Windows 7 and Windows 8. The latest version of IE for Windows XP is IE 8, but support for XP as a whole has been stopped for some time, so that's a moot point. If you still have Windows XP and that computer is connected to the Internet, you should probably do something about it sooner rather than later.
