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?
Same here, would like to hear an official statement regarding this.
What is IE7 and IE8 ? Sounds evil…
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.
EDIT : found the message from Jarrel http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/do-we-have-to-support-ie9-now/34610?page=5#384343
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.
