Microsoft strips some Windows 7 users of IE11 patch privileges

Microsoft has quietly stopped serving security updates to Internet Explorer 11 on consumer and small business Windows 7 PCs unless the customer has successfully applied a browser update from April.

Meanwhile, IE11 was the second-most popular version of Internet Explorer used in May, accounting for 29.3% of all instances of Microsoft's browser. Only IE8 was run by more people.

Much of IE11's popularity on Windows 7 stemmed from the automatic upgrades from IE10 that began late last year, after the browser was released for the 2009 operating system.
