Most of this was for IE 10  "Microsoft will end support for Internet Explorer 10 in January 2020"

Servers (more critical than Workstations) are being adapted to use IE 11.  

So while I use Edge (along with the other 3 people on the planet who use Edge) and intensely dislike the silly look of Chrome (wasted space and unprofessional look of very rounded everything on the page), at least IE 11 is being maintained.

I hear AOL is ending support for Netscape Navigator too. Netscape Communicator is superseding it.

I read the article, but did not see anything that spoke about IE 10 ver IE 11.

Fuller quote from the bottom of the article (and I have read others like it)

""We want you to use IE for the sites that need it - what I'm trying to say here is that I hope you don't use it for everything else,” Mr Jackson said in a comment on the blog post.
Microsoft will end support for Internet Explorer 10 in January 2020, while Internet Explorer 11 will remain as the final iteration of the software."

Some servers do not have (and have not been able to update to) IE 11.  This was not in the article but I have read it along with the statement that Server updates would be revised to use IE 11. I am not sure about Server 2008 but certainly Server 2012.

The headline is somewhat sensational, the message is just good security practice.
