Due to an overwhelming positive response, we are officially dropping support for Internet Explorer 7. What does this actually mean?
- We will no longer test or fix minor display issues that only affect IE7.
- We have flagged the browser as out-of-date which will add a notification banner to many of the pages on our site and direct the user to upgrade.
Why drop support?
- Internet explorer has a long list of layout (css) bugs. While most of them have workarounds, this coding takes time. With Internet Explorer 7 now accounting for less than 3% of our total traffic, it is no longer worth the effort.
When will this occur?
We have already made the change to flag Internet Explorer 7 (as well as Firefox 4, Safari 4 and Chrome 3) as out-of-date. Due to caching it may take up to 30 days for some users to see the banner.
