Depreciated support for IE10

On 12 January 2016, Microsoft support ends for older versions of Internet Explorer.

Microsoft recently announced that, beginning next Tuesday, 12 January 2016, they will officially retire Internet Explorer versions 8, 9, and 10 for most Windows operating systems. This basically means the end of security updates and technical help for versions of Internet Explorer other than 11, the latest iteration. Internet Explorer has been living on borrowed time since Internet Explorer 11 rolled out in 2013. Its officially the last version with Microsoft now focused on the Edge browser that comes with Windows 10 instead.

Changes to TaxLab minimum requirements

TaxLab will officially be shifting its minimum requirements from Internet Explorer 10 to Internet Explorer 11 from 12 January 2016 in line with Microsoft. While it’s likely that TaxLab will continue to work in Internet Explorer 10 for some time yet, but we will not be optimising our code for it due to its obsolescence and TaxLab features will eventually stop working as well as they should.

What you should do

If you are using an earlier version of Internet Explorer, please update to a modern browser. We recommend using Google Chrome, but also support Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge. Please contact us on 0800 00 1035 or support@taxlab.co.nz if you would like to know more.
