NewsIE8 and XP to cause 'perfect storm' in 2013 Pin

For many, XP might seem like a distant memory, but... around one in four PCs still runs that operating system, and in some locales (for example, China), its share rises significantly. With Microsoft unable or unwilling to enable XP to run IE9 or later, this means IE8 will likely have a very long tail in terms of usage, not least due to, as Hunt notes, many organisations having a ‘standard’ OS environment that doesn’t allow more modern XP-compatible browsers to be installed alongside the ageing IE8.
Are you ready to pull the plug on XP and IE8?
