I added an image and linked it on one of my pages but it is not showing up in IE unless its 9 or above. It shows up fine in chrome. What would this be happening? I have the same image and link on another page and it is showing up fine.

Could be a number of possibilities...

Clear your browser cache. Typically if something updates correctly in one browser, and not in another, clearing the cache will fix it. Basically the browser may be loading from memory, instead of loading from the actual page. Usually Chrome is horrible at this, but it can happen with any browser. A quick search for "Clearing __your browser here's__ cache" will get you the directions for your particular version.

Sometimes a small error in your html can cause a display problem in one browser and not another. Basically all browsers are programmed to try to display a page, errors or not, some (OK, pretty much all) are just much better than IE at guessing what was meant when they run into code issues. Run the validator at: Ready to check - Nu Html Checker to get a listing of any errors. Cleaning them out could fix it.

Bad coding methods, like using absolute positioning and overlapping a linked image with the empty space of another absolutely positioned element can "steal the click" from your linked image. Basically causing the browser to think you're clicking on an empty container, rather than the link below it. If you're using APDivs/Absolute Positioning, this one is probably the hardest to fix because it requires a rethinking of how a page is designed.

There are other reasons, but without seeing your actual page in our browsers, it's hard to say what else it might be.

https://www.xfive.co/blog/stop-supporting-ie10-ie9-ie8/

As the OP no longer appears to be interested.

I'm wondering if default browsers on mobile devices present a bigger risk to users than IE 9/10, and if anyone has a stratergy for developing for older mobile browsers?

Cheaper Android devices still do not offer users any way to update the software, and even iOS devices do not update if they do not have enough free storage space, or are considered too old, (both of which also applies to Android).

The average life of mobile devices used to be considered as approx 5 years, but I have seen people using devices that are 7-9 years old, and even though I also have an Android phone that uses OS2.4 for testing that is 8 years old, I did not until recently realise that there is now a market for working 'retro' mobile devices.

Your point is valid.  I still have an old Android 4.1 too.  It's practically useless for anything other than basic usage so I cancelled its data plan.   But I never used its native Android browser because it was totally inept.   Chrome worked much better.
