POLL: Should I worry about Internet Explorer?

What do you think? Should I worry about making my sites IE friendly?

Hey @Seppo_Riiho ,

in principle yes, but it depends on your target group or rather on your customer. If the target group often only has access to rudimentary technology or often works in corporations where the use of modern browsers is often limited. You can also advise the users of the website, if they use Internet Explorer, that they should use a more modern browser.

Example:

<style>
@media screen and (-ms-high-contrast: active), (-ms-high-contrast: none) {
	.YOUR-CLASS-WITH-NOTIFICATION { 
     display: BLOCK/FLEX; 
  		} 
  	{}
}
</style>

But there is light at the end of the tunnel. Windows 7 support will end on January 14, 2020, and certainly about 80% of all Windows 7 users will soon switch to Windows 10. As Windows 10 tells its users to use Microsoft Edge, many worries are over. Even those users for whom the Internet is still difficult to understand will then be 99% free of problems.

But your best friend is and always will be: https://caniuse.com/

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.
