This crap ad is now appearing on every AVS page. It wants you to use Chrome or Firefox. Is AVS dropping support for IE or is this (as I suspect) a misleading spam ad that really should not be on the website?

If you're using a modern version of IE (9.0 or newer) you shouldn't see that. But if you're using a really old version of IE, things may not display and/or function correctly.

My work PC is still Windows XP and IE 8. I have been begging my superiors for a newer OS for some time (Win 7 would
be enough) so I could upgrade to IE11. The ad is misleading, since you indicate AVS will support IE9 and later.

Thanks for the info.

You can install the latest versions of Chrome and/or Firefox on Win XP, leaving IE 8 as your default browser. That way when you choose to you can click on the Chrome/Firefox icon and browse sites that prefer newer browsers.

My boss has indicated at a minimum, my existing PC will be upgraded to Windows 7. I have the latest version of Firefox installed on my desktop. Thanks for the assistance.

Chrome will support XP until at least 2015 and maybe longer; Firefox Has No Plans To Stop
