Microsoft to End Support of IE 8,9,10 & 11 = Happy Birthday to Me!

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.
