Hello,

After the Microsoft Christmas’s Gift ( i mean auto update for IE), i wonder whether the authors must still develop for IE7 and IE8 for the themes of Themeforest?

I’m curious….

WPExplorer, yep, evil with 4% + 22% of browsers market share :\

IE8 will be there as long as WinXP lasts. And that’s really annoying.

IE6 and IE7 are not required. Jarrel has a post somewhere about this.

use XP here, highest level of IE possible is IE8 . use FF and Chrome some of the time, did notice that Safari was a large user database on one of the sites I have, more than FF or Chrome, so i think it depends on your audience.

doubt that I will ever be able to update past IE8 , and as long as it works OK on most web sites, I won’t really care.

if you don’t provide support for my IE level, then I will probably not come to your web site again if you want to reject me as a viewer by not giving me a reasonable experience regardless of the browser I use. I won’t always switch to FF or Chrome to see your web site unless your content is really desirable but please don’t make it too big a hassle for me regardless of my browser..

I doubt we’ll be able to get rid of IE8 or even IE7 anytime soon. There are still so many users (especially corporate users) running old versions and/or running XP – dropping support for the older versions seems rather opportunistic. ;)
