We look forward to the coming release of Internet Explorer 10. If for no other reason it will mean the death of IE6 & IE7. Rumors indicate that a beta release of IE10 will be out this month and that IE10 will be out with the Windows 8 release. Unconfirmed reports indicate that Windows 8 will be out around June of this year.
Microsoft announced that in 2012 it will start doing automatic updates of users browsers. Nearly 8.3% of internet users are still using IE6. Microsoft announced this week that it is no longer supporting IE6 and most web developers stopped supporting it with the release of Internet Explorer 9 last year. Most developers will stop supporting IE7 with the release of IE10.
What does this mean for Concrete5 users? Not a lot, other than that it will be somewhat easier to develop websites that display more consistently for all users and there is the potential to add more interactive functionality.
