A question to themeforest buyers, do you still care about IE7 ? will I experience a drop in sales if I ditch the support for IE7 ?
Im asking this after the staff decision that IE7 support is no longer required.
Yes, I will still support it.
We contribute to the development of web sites around the world, when we throw the IE7 . They slow all our development process. We are professionals and we want our customers to be happy without using IE7 !
NO ! I think we should move ahead with technology. Even analytic says, percentage of IE 7 users around the globe is around 3-4%
Look.. it’s a simple fact… even if IE7 support is not strictly required for themeforest approval, it IS still a web browser and people DO still use it… I don’t care about W3C ’s personal stats.
If the browser still exists and people are using it, then yes, it’s your job as a web developer to support it. ESPECIALLY in the template/themes market.. because think about it, when you’re developing sites for clients you have data available based on your client’s user base to tell you which browsers are worth supporting, BUT in the themes market you have absolutely no idea who is going to be using your theme, who their users are or what browsers they will be using..
I really don’t know why this is a topic that needs so much discussion.
Its z-index problems which are the main problems with IE7 .
