Microsoft has announced that it will end support for Internet Explorer versions 8, 9, 10, and 11 on January 12th 2016! That’s just one more reason to celebrate my birthday!
I feel like Microsoft has given me an early birthday gift just by making this announcement. Long have I toiled with this inconsistent piece-of-poop browser. No longer! I am officially dropping my support (in all future web projects) for IE 8, 9, 10 & 11, also! It’s been way too long – and IE has always costed me so much grief. I’m done – I’m not accepting any new projects that want to support these ancient and unreliable browsers. There will still be IE Edge to contend with, but from what I hear, that browser will be very standards compliant and modern. We shall see! ;)
It’s been a long road to travel with you, IE, but now I must bid you adieu. Happy Birthday, Edge. We’ll see what the future holds.
