Hi there, fellow web developers. I stopped testing for Internet Explorer 6 a while ago, simply because I had enough trouble managing virtual machines to handle testing in IE7, IE8 and IE9. Now with my primary client fully switched over to IE8, I find myself rarely, if ever, even testing in IE7. In fact, I removed that VM from my VMWare Virtual Machine Library just yesterday (although I did not delete the VM’s file off my hard drive).
So my question to you all is: do you still test in IE7? Or is it only 8 and above for you guys now?
Thanks for your input!
HTML5 goodness is all around us now, with its semantic nature in elements such as <article> and <section>. But when it comes to using HTML5 in websites for the U.S. federal government, there are some major obstacles in the way.
How’s this for stupid IE7 tricks?
I have a <legend> inside a <fieldset> inside a <div> that is made a modal via jQuery. Said <legend> disappears when it is italic AND the modal is set to non resizable. If either of those conditions is false, the <legend> displays fine.
And this is only happening in IE7 (as opposed to Firefox, Chrome, etc. I’m not testing in other versions of IE).
