We’ve just finished our final month at Learning Seat for supporting Internet Explorer 8. Momentum continues to accelerate as organisations shift away from the insecure and old browser. We recognise it has been a big change for many organisations, but the result is that those organisations who have upgraded are much more secure and have less issues when using modern web-based applications.
Microsoft has just announced that Windows 10 will be launched on July 29 with their new browser, Microsoft Edge, as default. Additionally, it will be a free upgrade for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users. You may have even seen a new icon appear in your taskbar where if you open it, it will allow you to register for your free upgrade.
This announcement caught many organisations by surprise, as Windows 10 wasn’t expected until near the end of the year, but illustrates the importance of keeping as up-to-date as possible when it comes to your software environment.
Post-July 1 doesn’t mean that those organisations who haven’t been able to upgrade will not be able to use Learning Seat applications, however if there are any critical bugs or issues that arise which are caused only by using Internet Explorer 8, we will not be in a position to address them. If you haven’t started the switch, now’s the time!
At Learning Seat, we’ve just started our shakedown testing of the LMS and our courses with the Microsoft Windows 10 Developer Preview and Microsoft Edge to make sure that when July 29 comes around, everything works as it should.
