It won’t disappear, but…
If you are still using Explorer 8, 9 or 10, you might want to watch your notifications on January 12. You should get the “End of Life” information unless you’ve disabled it. If you have disabled it, you are probably glad you are reading this today, but it’s nothing new as it was announced back in August 2014.
So. Microsoft will be only supporting the last version of Internet Explorer on all Windows systems. As stated by Lance Whitney at CNET “The move doesn't mean older versions of IE will disappear from your PC. It does mean no more bug fixes, updates or other patches will be released, leaving those editions vulnerable to malware and other security threats.”
Does this “End of Life” affect the use of TeleManager, TME, or Cimpl?
IT management addicts, rejoice. Our products are compatible with Internet Explorer 11. Our website also works with the most recent browser version. If you are experiencing challenges running an application on any website once you’ve upgraded your browser, Vincent Parisien shared this tip, “you can run older versions of IE in compatibility under IE11.” Parisien also added that “Some enterprise clients may have negotiated extended support for these end-of-life versions and will not be affected at all.”

What is your preferred Browser?
I’ve learned to work using multiple Web browsers in order to test web pages. But I personally prefer Chrome and Firefox. Have any of you used the new Edge Browser by Microsoft? Let me know what you think. Shared your thoughts below.
