Fuck you Internet Explorer for not supporting new CSS Features
Fuck you Internet Explorer for not supporting new HTML Features
Fuck you Internet Explorer for not supporting new JS features
Fuck you Internet Explorer for not being an evergreen browser
Fuck you Internet Explorer for not working with modern frameworks
Fuck you Internet Explorer for stopping progress
Fuck you Internet Explorer for being a huge headfuck for every web developer around the world.
But finally, Thankyou Internet Explorer for being ahead of it's time, for being responsible for the internet, for being for our jobs, and allowing humanity to progress with technology, even if it made things really annoying sometimes.
You are the reason this website exists, IE
but, it's time to forgive and forget.
I urge all web developers to follow suit and speak with their organisations, clients, and developers to tell them that IE is now a relic of the past
Despite the few business-benefits that may exist of supporting IE, it has come time for even big corporates to abandon IE, and move towards evergreen browsers such as Chrome, Edge, and Firefox
By every developer doing their part, we ensure IE does in fact become a relic of the past.
DEV.to developers reading this,
Urge Website Visitors that don't already, to use an Evergreen browser.
If developers are interested, I can provide and develop some IE-friendly code for developers that will tell users it's deprecated and how to easily change browsers.
This has already been done by browser-update.org
You are responsible for the innovation of the internet, and reducing IE usage across the globe.
