How Come?

The percentage of users using IE8 has dropped sharply in the past year with the current number well under 8%. Whether this is due to widespread adoption of Windows 8, Internet Explorer starting to auto update or jQuery 2.0 dropping support for IE8, we’ll never know.

Great news! :)

P.S.

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 :)

And maybe new problems occur while you think that your code is working perfect :D This is the nature of IE. Actually I like Microsoft but I can’t understand why they just don’t give up on web browsers…
