The most important thing to remember regarding support for Internet Explorer is that any version of below Internet Explorer 10 will be served a Adobe Flash fall back viewer of the project.
For those who are into web design, it has become a common practice to check appearance and stability of web pages in Internet Explorer. The reason that Internet Explorer remains an on-going issue for web designers is that the world’s most used operating system, Microsoft Windows, has Internet Explorer as its default browser. Most people are unaware of the fact that it’s necessary to update your software. Another common reason is that many companies don’t allow individual users to update software themselves. This results in many Internet Explorer users that use outdated software.
Through the last 10 years there have been many developments that help to bridge the gap between outdated browsers and new technologies, but still there are many limitations. It is important that to be aware of what those limitations are in order to avoid unpleasant surprises when someone accesses your project using one of these outdated browsers.
One of the first things to realize is that due to current trends the expectation is that websites are built using HTML5. And since that any Internet Explorer version below version 10 doesn’t provide complete support for all features of HTML5 needed to properly show Barisco projects; we are using a Adobe Flash fall back version of the viewer.
