    We will no longer be accepting contracts which have an internet explorer or edge support requirement.

    All of the front end devs are going hysterical and celebrating πŸ˜‚ πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

    Does edge suck too?

    @eternalfool yep. pretty much.
    it's slower than firefox or chrome

    @SweetHuman Performance is one thing, but from a devs point of view, I would assume the following of standards would be the main concern. I know old IE versions sucked, but is really IE11 and Edge that bad?

    @stormwise even if there were 0 issues (which there isn't), msft's reputation with compliant browsers is so horrible and we cbf dealing with all the future issues.

    Having developed for edge: Fuck edge. My project literally worked in every browser INCLUDING IE10 but not Edge. Microsoft should just leave the browser making to companies that are actually capable of developing one.

    While I have no love for IE or Edge, and use neither, not supporting is saying "no thanks" to 30% of the market. It makes no business sense.

    Edge have on par support for HTML5 and JavaScript ES6 standards...

    I should also note we're a contractor img company, focusing on internal web apps - so this is a little easier to swallow and market share is much less of an issue. Although we do build the odd SaaS here and there..

    Currently developing with electron. For just a single version of chromium. Damn, that's a relief!

    @brukernavn32 and they should leave making OS's to other companies. And phones... hmm actually, i can't think of any product they've build which is superior to others. Although... paint used to be a pretty good program.

    Edge and IE 11 is not *THAT* bad anymore :) not good but not so bad anymore

    Edge is actually faster than Chrome and is standards compliant. I use it most of the time, because it has the best touch support and can't complain :-)

    @kwilliams Don't you mean subpar? Their youtube page access doesn't even load HTML5 video.

    @peterbetos I think you'll find you're wrong there...

    @kwilliams oh am I now...

    @kwilliams point of reference, this is in Chrome

    @peterbetos I think that is actually an attempt of Google to move users to Chrome rather than actual true test of browser capabilities. Edge supports HTML5 video quite well

    @stormwise nevermind, they're stuck in 90's stereotypes ... They clearly didn't use edge, saying that is even slower than chrome and firefox... ROTFL

    @Jase yeah people still trust google, they'll need 10 years to understand what's going really on.
