Hi, I love spin.js.

I used spin.js in my project and found that it has trouble with Modernizr.

When I use spin.js with Modernizr's html5shiv v3.4, spin did not appear on IE8 at all.
Without html5shiv, it had no trouble.

This seems a problem about html5shiv; but this seems a common pitfall for many people; so I just wanted tell you this.


I can also confirm that this is happening for IE6, IE7 and IE8.

Spin.js does not work with html5shiv 3.4, but works fine without it.

I love the net some days. Found your plugin after seeing it in the credits of some HTML5 photoshop clone, wanted to use it on a new project that I have to demo tomorrow and found this bug in the wee hours last night. Was disappointed and then mere hours later its fixed already, pretty lucky for me :) Thanks!


I am using Modernizr 2.6.2 and the issue still exists for IE8. I am using spin.js 1.3.2
