The infamous Internet Explorer is a browser we all love to hate. For users, it’s notoriously slow, and for marketers it is the bane of our email marketing and web design testing processes.

But lucky for us, Microsoft has announced that support for older versions of Internet Explorer will end on January 12, 2016. This means that only Internet Explorer 11 will continue to receive security updates, compatibility fixes, and technical support.

Internet Explorer 11 has had much better reviews than previous versions and offers better security and performance than operating systems created in the past.

Microsoft Warns of Internet Explorer Security Flaw
If you’re still using Internet Explorer as your primary browser, you might be vulnerable to hackers attempting to gain access to your PC. According to Mashable, Microsoft admitted that IE versions 6 and up are experiencing a security flaw right now that has yet to be solved. Your best bet for secure web browsing until the issue is fixed is to stop using Internet Explorer altogether. Chrome and Firefox are great alternatives. Mashable says that if you want to continue using IE, you can disable the Flash plug-in to stop the bug (also stopping any videos and games though), or activate Enhanced Protected Mode, which has been available since IE10.
