Microsoft understands that there are still a lot of businesses and organizations using Internet Explorer. Maybe because it supports legacy web apps or its just something the company has been used to for many years. Old habits die hard however, and Microsoft is now urging it’s users to finally embrace a modern browser.
Internet defense specialist, Chris Jackson at Microsoft mentioned companies continuing to use the outdated browser are putting their businesses at serious risk of “technical debt”. “These companies are setting themselves up for added expenses down the road”, he states. You can find that article on Microsoft’s blog.
All in all, It might be convenient to run old apps in IE, but it’s safer, smarter and better long term to move to a modern browser.
