I’m torn between thinking that MSFT should fix this sort of thing, (because security firms estimate that between 15 and 25 percent of the world’s PCs still run Windows XP) and hoping that people will take the simple way out and quit using Internet Explorer so I don’t have to keep worrying about making website work on it.
Microsoft is scrambling to fix a major bug which allows hackers to exploit flaws in Internet Explorer 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11, responsible for 55% of the PC browser market. The company has also confirmed it will not issue a fix for web browsers running on Windows XP after it formally ended support for the 13 year old operating system on 8 April. XP still accounts for 25% of the world’s PCs.
Who am I kidding? I just want people to quit using old versions of IE.
