I am getting nearer to release of the first group of Core Design stacks and some of the MenuLab components and I really need to know whether IE 11 is still a priority for people.
Do you need to have everything work in IE11?
Are some rudimentary fallbacks sufficient?
Are you not bothered at all?
What framework / theme are you using?
It seems to me that people are now used to not having IE11 support and just some fallbacks for colours and layout in places. Using modern CSS and JS brings new features and reduced code size but at the price of support for older browsers.
Please comment with at least 1, 2 or 3 and your framework(s).
More discussion is welcome.
My view is that if you really need IE11 then you should use IE11 complaint stacks from the olden times such as Foundry or Foundation1, and forego the nice stuff such as Core. If adding some rudimentary fallbacks is not too much work then this would be a nice to have addition. Otherwise, not that bothered.
Users who still use IE11 or who are forced to use it by Win10 defaulting to IE11, wouldn’t know a correctly and well laid out web site, should they ever see one.
Good enough for Nick Cates is good enough for RW users then. :)
I still transpile all ES6 to ES5 automatically on build but of course the new observer methods and event handlers need cumbersome polyfills. Many of my stacks have an option to drop in a polyfill as a child stack if needed but I wanted to draw the line in the sand somewhere.
