Having said that the Komando article has misquoted the original blog post that it links to. IE is not being retired this November.
I personally never believe that anything said by Kim Komando is anywhere near to 100% accurate.  At least a direct link to the source material is in this particular article, but there have been others where there was not even that.  Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy!!  And a long track record of being so.

That being said, I absolutely agree that no one should continue to use IE, except if one happens to have the very odd situation where that's forced by a given employer or website, and that's a very, very rare occurrence these days.

I've posted the references that follow on other groups before, but they're certainly pertinent in this topic:
