9 May (Part 3) -
Time for an update
days there is a single visitor to Bonkers using Internet Explorer 8. That
browser is eight years old and has only limited support for HTML5. BiB has been mainly in
HTML5 format for a couple of years and wholly so for at least six months.
The extra facilities HTML5 allows are gradually being introduced and some are most
definitely not compatible with Internet Explorer versions earlier than 10.
Code changes were made yesterday which might give users of earlier Internet
Explorer versions a worse experience than before. I’m not sure of the precise
effect because I haven’t got an old version to test on but if you are the IE8
user and see differences you will know the reason why.
Both Chrome and Firefox offer extensive support for HTML5 as does Safari for Apple devices.
