i agree with you but there are still millions of people who uses IE. and i see tons of templates with css3 which supports IE 6 7 8 . There must be a way to make IE users happy as other browser users
I didn’t say to not support IE8.. I just say to provide a nice fallback and not go over your head trying to implement fancy features..
About tons of templates supporting IE6 or IE7, where do you see them? Those browsers are not even required on TF.. Show me a single creative theme that supports IE7
i dont want to make good or bad advertisement but it takes seconds for me to find a theme which supports IE7
it has written there, it must support ie7
I don’t support IE7 anymore from my last release (Nevia) and I don’t care about missing CSS3 effects in IE8, but it’s yours choice. If you still want to support IE7, my condolences.
No one says that you shouldn’t support IE7 (I don’t support it anymore but that’s not the case). What we say is that you shouldn’t force rounded corners and other fancy stuff in browser that don’t have that functionality. The fact that certain theme is supported in IE7 doesn’t mean it will look and behave exactly the same as in modern browsers.
There are probably some scripts or polyfills that will enable some CSS3 fancy stuff in 10 year old browsers but I don’t recommend using them because it will completely ruin user experience and make your webpage painfully slow and unresponsive (especially given the fact that browsers like IE7 are usually installed on really old machines). User experience is what matters, not rounded corners or RGBA.
First of all i am sorry my English is not good Enough. Thank you for all answers. I am just building my very first Theme and i use css3 Box shadows and RGBA colors. It looks in modern browsers exactly what i am trying to show but not in -IE9.
i dont know which word to use, support,compatible with i dunno. IE 9- users have to see witout css3box shadow and rgba color is the solition? or as i understood from RubenBristian i have to build an alternative for the IE 9- users, without rounded corners, without css3 things ? am i right ?
