I assume Ie 9 will still work on here just not be supported. I have tried to install 11 but it will not install on vista.

Internet Explorer 9 is the highest version of Internet Explorer you can have in Windows Vista. You'll need Windows 7 for Internet Explorer 11, or Windows 8.1 (since Windows 8 stops at Internet Explorer 10 which is the default web browser). Obviously, Windows 10 is also another option.

Yea I tried to install 10 and 11 on vista and it will not install.  So I guess we will have to use 9 or an alternate browser.

 

I am a little gun shy about firefox after my last fiasco with it. Used if for about 8 years without issue.  I was useing it when Ilost the use of vista.

Well, if you want a good, reliable and secure web browser, Google Chrome will fit all your needs.

Unless you have one of those crap banking sites, seriously banking sites often require IE and sometimes user agents dont work

Microsoft never released Internet Explorer 10 or 11 for Windows Vista which means that users on Vista systems are stuck with Internet Explorer 9. The company continues to support IE9 on Vista (and Windows Server 2008), and will do so until support for Windows Vista ends on April 11, 2017.

Consider upgrading to Windows 7: it will be supported until Jan 14, 2020

Run the Windows 7 Compatibility Advisor

the biggest issue is WINE, the last known version of IE to work was IE8 and again IE is still used for banking websites so those switching to linux will have issues

I'm a bit confused.

 

        As of next month, support for all earlier versions of IE will cease...

 

Which version(s) will remain supported?

 

I've got IE somewhere on this machine but I don't even know which version - I'm a hardcore Firefox user and am fortunate enough that my bank (credit union) website does not have any issues with that browser so my migration to Linux, which going along well, is not an issue but still wanted to know what the "official" version of IE is.

 

Thanks.

IE 11 is probably the one they want people to go to, the issue there is that even with compatibility mode some websites still like IE6  :ranting:

The issue isn't Internet Explorer 11 at this point, it's the people behind the website that makes it for Internet Explorer 6. I'm surprised it's not for at least Internet Explorer 8. In a perfect world, every websites should be up to date for Internet Explorer 11 and other web browsers (like Chrome, Firefox, etc.).

true enough though banking websites are very guilty of this sort of thing, even government websites have aimed to IE8 at least.

Next year is last year for vista anyhow, though that does suck for those who still use it as it did get good in its later years.

Vista was never good :P Hence why Microsoft released Windows 7 so fast after, to make us forget about it. The UAC was also way too intrusive. Also, it's quite ironic that banks, which should have websites, servers, etc. way more protected than your average one build their websites for an old, outdated and vulnerable version of Internet Explorer and it's users. Then they wonder how they get breached, and/or why their websites are targetted by stealers and such.
