Buyers are still asking crazy for it. But it should become useless in a year or max two..

It’s at 23% market share for April 2013 Apparently so you can’t just dump it yet sadly

I dropped support of IE8 last year. I haven’t had any complaints.

As soon as it drops under 5% market share. For sure will be a notice from Envato stuff.

You can drop it but reviewers won’t approve it. I would drop it but I won’t.

I guess as long as I own this laptop, I will be stuck with IE8 when I use IE. use Chrome a lot, FF not so much, so to a certain extent, it does not matter. if I want to go to a site that doesn’t like IE8, I use Chrome to view it, if I decide to keep visiting it.

eventually it boils down to what your users use, not what you want them to use, and the experience you want them to have when they come to your web site. if they come to your site with IE8 and you don’t accommodate them, then that may be your loss. I, as a user, may decide to use whatever browser I wish for whatever reason, and I am not really sure I should be obligated to change that for usually a poor reason, so in the end, it boils down to me as a user coming to your site using the browser of my choice and finding out whether you can accommodate me or not, if not, you give me another reason not to come back and see you again.
