Maybe 2 years ago when many clients ask for IE6 support that was even worse!

But today i can’t remember when i last open IE6 , and IE7 also goes down in history quickly. Most popular browser is Chrome. It is much better situation with browsers than before. Isn’t it?

But today all front-end developers and designers have new challenges called HTML5 , CSS3, Responsive layout, CSS frameworks. I think we will never be able to relax…

Agree, even while not working with IE you have difficulties like for example Opera not supporting gradients. And there are manny manny more. I still don’t understand why company’s like Microsoft don’t just update their browser….

Unfortunately most people who browse the web still use IE, so providing support for IE is very important. I guess you could see it as something positive if you’re a freelancer, as you can charge your client a lot for (mostly) just a few minutes of work.

IE really needs to improve though. I still don’t understand why Microsoft can’t build a normal full-features browser with the latest technologies. Mozilla seems to be able to do it, and they only have a limited budget. If Microsoft doesn’t quickly add these new HTML5 technologies to all their browsers, not just IE10 that runs on Windows 8, they’ll be useless for us developers.

The people that still use IE use it only because they don’t know any better. They use it because it is pre installed on their PC. I guess theire should be some sort of way for google to make it more attractive for people to download Chrome especially since everyone uses google. Some people even think google is al their is on the internet. :P The ulitmate campange for google would be to stop supporting Internet Explorer so everyone has to download chrome or another alternative browser. :)

@kvendrik thats a poor argument. Whilst i am no ie advocate, many companies use ie.

If google were to blacklst ie the internet imho would be over, once a company of googles magnitude controls what we use, its game over

Not in China – it’s blocked there. And there are a lot of people in China.

Don’t stress, time will kill those IE versions we all hate – just like it did with IE6 . :)

Why useless? :D I use everything that i can from HTML5 /CSS3 and i don’t care if these features don’t work in IE. You shouldn’t stop progress because of a company.

This is true manny companies use IE. This is caused by the fact that most of their users don’t know much about computers and use the pre installed IE. My argument about google blocking IE is of course not a good idea and was more of a joke but what is true however is that the only reason some company apps only support IE is because most of their users use IE. And this is caused by IE being pre installed on every Windows PC.

Not quite :)

I work in a corporation and I can tell you the reason: internal tools and apps.

Big companies have corporate contracts with MS. IT departments use MS software and they’re kinda forced into supporting IE and IE only (because, for example, Sharepoint simply can’t work right in Gecko/Webkit).

And though some companies make efforts in upgrading systems to only support newer IE versions, it’s still IE what their employees use.

Add a customized infrastructure to that (like stripping MS software features for security reasons) and you can see it’s not about their employees actually :)
