Not going to support it. The quicker you people stop supporting the train wrecks that are Microsoft’s browsers, the quicker they will be phased out.

When every other site users go on look horrible and broken, they will realize something is up and upgrade to better browsers. It’s just common sense. When a dog pees on the carpet, you don’t give him a treat, do you? Because that would teach him that it’s okay to do that. Same concept here.

@AlexPascal, you’re another one who obviously doesn’t grasp that the majority of users browsing in older versions of IE are not doing so through choice. There are employees of various companies all over the globe who cannot upgrade their browsers until they’ve upgraded their machines – which in alot of cases would unfortunately be too much to ask.

I for one will still be supporting IE7 if it’s not to much pain. Usually it’s getting the positions and floats right, and I’m done. Not to much work imho.

We need to at least stop microsoft creating ‘revolutionary new’ :sarcasm: browsers so that eventually people will be forced to move on to awesome new browsers like chrome and firefox. if new IE’s are created, with no auto-updating (well not as good as chrome and ff at least), and which take 10 YEARS for people to update from, well, then the endless, vicious circle starts all over again.

So… create a petition for microsoft to step out of the browser wars? :D

Right on…I don’t have much trouble with IE7 (or even IE6 ) either.

I agree with you. It’s in our hands to motivate people to upgrade their machines and soft. We are building the internet not them!

... but i have to say that we are still supporting IE7 :P

Unfortunately that concept doesn’t apply here.

You need to follow the market, not the other way around. You can’t tell users what to do and what not. Maybe advice them, but not force them. Many users won’t “realize” anything, nor use “common sense”.

When your client’s site looks horrible under a certain browser, but the client’s competitor’s website looks great (and so do 90% of all the website), he’d go there. The key is education, not force.

Exactly – “motivate”. But… upgrade their machines?

I can’t play newly released computer games, because of high hardware requirements. And it’s not like developers couldn’t make it so that their games require 1GB RAM instead of 4GB, 1.2GHz CPU instead of 3.2GHz and 2GB HDD instead of 16GB. Even now I’m being taught in university (I learn C++) that “with modern computers, optimizing isn’t that important anymore”.

Call of Duty 1 or Splinter Cell are beautiful games and they require… 700MHz CPU , 128MB RAM , 32MB Video RAM , 1400MB HDD .

So I disagree here. Making people upgrade their machines because of software requirements is anti-moral, index of laziness, lack of skills and even smells like cartel.
