A post says:
Google today announced that its Analytics service will stop supporting Internet Explorer 8 at the end of the year. As a result, Google Analytics users will only be able to use Microsoft's browser if they are on IE9, IE10, or IE11.

Windows Xp will be around for along time yet imo and IE 8 is as far as it can go.

I agree, I think XP will still hang around, but it'll no longer have support by Microsoft and that will make it more vulnerable to attack.

Isn't it time to upgrade, whether this support is there or not?

Well, I am looking to upgrade the OS to Linux Mint...

I still have XP on my single core P4 boxes and I use opera, or firefox, or on the rarest occasions, chrome. I actually use opera mobile emulator for BROWSING (instead of just for development) more than I use chrome...

And I don't think I have even launched IE yet... maybe I did only to download opera

Not true. Use Firefox or (ugh!) Chrome!

Windows XP is not going to be around in significant numbers much longer. Remaining corporate installs will disappear when its EOL next year.

It is also 12 years old! It is roughly the same age as OS X 10.0 (i.e. the very first version of Apple's OS) and older than the first versions of Fedora or Ubuntu. Even Debian (known for its long upgrade cycle) has managed six releases in that time.

It has no app store and terrible security. For almost everyone there is a much better alternative by now.
