Leaving the past where it belongs admin | October 25th, 2013

Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.

We know some people will feel somewhat nostalgic by having to leave their blue screens of death, frozen web browsers and broken websites behind. What once was considered standard, is now a mere blip in the traffic radar. Yes, I am talking about the Internet Explorer. More specifically, versions 8.0 and 9.0.

There are several reasons why you should consider upgrading your environment if you haven’t yet. By upgrading, you make sure your system is safer, runs faster and supports more features. Even Microsoft itself have once recognized the dangers of maintaining an outdated web browser for too long. So, if you happen to be running Internet Explorer 8 or 9, it is time to do that upgrade!

For crowdSPRING, and most complex websites, supporting all versions of Internet Explorer is expensive and tedious. Wouldn’t you prefer that we invest more of our time making more awesome features that you could use to make more money or find the perfect design you’ve been looking for? Yes, I knew you’d prefer that too! For that reason, we’re discontinuing support to Internet Explorer 8 effective immediately. For users of the version 9, beware: you’ll see a modal suggesting you to upgrade but we’ll still support it for a few more months.

PS: Most companies are following this trend, and if you didn’t know, Google is discontinuing support for IE 8 too.

From many minds, the perfect design. Post your project today and let the crowd wow you!
