The Thread is already 3 months old – things changes fast. As far as I know only the latest and the previous version of IE has to be supported and are required. That means IE10 & IE9.

I wish this requirement would simply go away (as well as IE itself, actually ;-). It really hamper design, and it’s the #1 reason I haven’t moved to HTML5 / CSS3 fully, rather sticking to jQuery.

6.4% of the 14.3% of people using IE use IE8, so that’s just under half

The stats

Well, you’re not doing anything for it to go away. :) On the contrary, by sticking to jQuery instead of using CSS3, you “encourage” people to still use it, by trying to have the same eye-candy in IE as in modern browsers. (if I correctly understood your reason for using jQuery)

What I always do is use CSS3 whenever possible for aesthetics, as long as functionality/layout isn’t impacted doesn’t break in older browsers. IE users still get a decent site, just not with all the awesomeness of CSS3 :)

I had a IE8 bug in one of my files and people complain about that. It needs to be supported as long people use it.
