Switching to Internet Explorer 11 or Microsoft Edge would be the better idea.Microsoft is releasing one last patch for Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 tomorrow -- along with an "End of Life" notice. From January 12 it will no longer support the older versions.
The end of life notices means that Internet Explorer won't receive any more security updates, or other patches. Those still using the browsers could in future be vulnerable to security threats and even hacks, depending on what other (if any) security software you have installed.
This is a move done by Microsoft to push people towards using their new version called Edge. This new browser is integrated with Cortana -- the company's virtual assistant -- it has its own reading list for saving pages and articles for later, and a doodle mode that lets you scribble on a web page.
