Another month has quickly gone by and we have just two months to go before we end Microsoft Internet Explorer 8. By now, you’ve received our notifications and your IT team or organisation is either upgrading to Internet Explorer 9 or above, or installed another browser such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
Exciting news from Microsoft’s Build Conference where they released the name of their new browser, Microsoft Edge. Edge will replace Internet Explorer as Microsoft deemed Internet Explorer too unsafe and insecure to use moving forward. Microsoft Edge is a complete rebuild for the modern web, and will be the default browser with Microsoft’s newest Operating System, Windows 10. We’re expecting to see it released sometime in late August, however Learning Seat will be installing a development preview to begin testing our courses and LMS against Microsoft’s latest operating system and browser. Stay tuned for more information from Microsoft.
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).
