The countdown continues towards the end of support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 at Learning Seat. In February we’ve seen a big drop off in the amount of our users using Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 which is extremely good news for those users – as they’ve likely upgraded to a safer and more secure browser.
The biggest news was that Microsoft has said they will scrap the Internet Explorer browser in its entirety in the not-to-distant future. Microsoft Windows 10 will have a brand new, completely overhauled browser, currently codenamed Project Spartan. Windows 10 is expected to arrive in July 2015 (around the same time Learning Seat will end Internet Explorer 8 support). It will also be a free upgrade for computers running Microsoft Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
Below we have our Six Month Browser Usage Average and the current trends (where we see Internet Explorer 8 dropping off and Chrome as well as Firefox picking up steam).
