As we get to EOL for Windows XP, the transition to modern browsers should be well underway…
Google Apps users will have to upgrade to either Internet Explorer 10 or 11 as Google moves away from supporting users on the older IE9.
Google Apps Soon Ending Support for IE9 Users
Google, at least, understands this, and I’m glad of it. There are too many fly-by-nights out there who are still doing “browser detection” instead of “capabilities detection” or “feature detection”. Or worse… not bothering to test in anything except the developers’ favorite browser.
I had a different, unfortunate experience, though, with another organization (who shall, for now, remain nameless) when I went to give them money yesterday! Their website utterly failed in IE11 in Windows 8.1, in compatibility mode or out, on both the x64 and RT platforms. I had to download and install “another browser” in order to renew my membership in this unfortunate, not-for-profit organization who had outsourced their membership management to YourMembership.com.
If anybody has connections to or with YourMembership.com, I’d love to help them get their website squared away and working properly in IE11. Pretty please?
