IE8 Sucks as for all the IE versions.
IE 8 is really old. IE 11 is about to be publicly released. I don’t see why IE 8 should still be supported. A lot of websites already adopted HTML5 and IE 8 is not capable of rendering HTML5.
Yes, some people are still using it. But I am sure they are using a really old computer AND are not willing to do a simple free upgrade/update. The majority of people are not like that. You can’t please everybody anyway.
Sadly it is still out there: http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_explorer.asp
You will find there are worryingly people who are just not aware of upgrading, too inexperienced and certain work/office environments that account for a fair amount of this
P.s. MOD this is an OLD thread and maybe worth locking up
