Security Concerns

Microsoft will be ending support for Internet Explorer 8 on January 12, 2016. IE 8 is over 6 years old and already has some significant security risks, and the end of Microsoft support will only make the browser more vulnerable to security flaws over time. This will make it impossible to ensure that our strict standards for customer safety and privacy are being met on these older browsers.

Compatibility Concerns

As support ends for IE 8, we expect to see more compatibility issues between the browser and modern course content. IE 8 already does not support HTML 5, which means that SafetySkills newest courses cannot play in the browser. Many recent and planned updates to our content simply cannot work on IE 8, such as support for mobile devices, language bundling and accessibility features.
