Dropping IE8 support in version 4 #14128
I've been reading that there are plans to drop support for IE8 in version 4 of Bootstrap. While it may be a dead browser in the commercial world, those of us who develop for the DoD are REQUIRED to include IE8!!!. It is a mandatory requirement for the DoD, and will be for probably at least another year.
I also heard a lot about usage of IE8 in film industry because of security reasons. I think that's the most idiotic reason around. Supporting IE8 which is already 6 years old and doesn't support most common Web techniques is only pain. It makes a lot of work with little value. And it encourages this community of administrators living in a "never touch a running system" to hold software development hostage in system from the last century. For me it is a reason to celebrate that Microsoft drooped XP support and also IE8 is dieing because it's the badest browser that is still used.
