Supporting past versions of Internet Explorer is often one of the biggest headaches of being a web developer. Today, as an early Christmas present to authors, we’re pleased to announce that IE8 compliance will now be purely optional for authors.

How Come?

The percentage of users using IE8 has dropped sharply in the past year with the current number well under 8%.

Great news! :)

P.S.

After you put a stake in its heart, don’t forget to burn it and lock the ashes somewhere so it will never come back :D

IE11 has an option (that is checked by default) to install updates automatically. I can’t remember if older version had that.

At least some problems will go away as they update the browser so we’ll have fewer things to worry about :)
