A lot of people received a not so welcomed surprise (myself included) when they realized that the recently released Internet Explorer 9 was not compatible with Windows XP (yes I still have Windows XP installed at home). Internet Explorer 10 is in development and Microsoft has announced that Windows Vista will not be supported.
Microsoft has been aggressively promoting the idea that a browser is only as good as the operating system it runs on, and that by extension, browsers that run on older OSes are sub-standard.
“Windows Vista customers have a great browsing experience with IE9,” says Microsoft in a statement, “but in building IE10 we are focused on continuing to drive the kind of innovation that only happens when you take advantage of the ongoing improvements in modern operating systems and modern hardware.”
Look out for Internet Explorer 10 and Windows 8 in 2012, more on these topics in future posts on Geezam.com.
