Internet Explorer 9 will not support Windows XP

It's time to get ready to say goodbye to that Windows XP machine. If you can upgrade to Windows 7, do it. The new Internet Explorer 9 will not support Windows XP. This means that you'll be stuck with IE 8, or you could use Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera, or something else.

I still have a few older PCs that are running XP and I don't plan to upgrade the OS just so that I can run Internet Explorer 9. Also, if you have an inexpensive netbook that's running XP, it may not be worth upgrading to Windows 7.

The funny thing is that I rarely use IE. I spend much more time using Firefox or Chrome. I still occasionally use IE, but I could be using Safari or Opera instead.

  1. Too bad I still haven't upgraded my Windows XP yet. At least Internet explorer gave me reasons to do it now. Thanks!
