Whilst testing our latest Public View system updates we took a break to look at how many users are still using Microsoft's antique browser, and the answer is around ten percent:
This is a Microsoft Azure chart, not one of ours, which use much prettier colours
Note that some browsers like Brave may identify as Chrome, which also underpins Edge etc
Here's Microsoft's latest announcement on their antique browser.
Microsoft's latest timescale to modernity
Sadly IE11 will receive security updates until Windows 10 ends, so some users will be stuck with slow and unreliable browsing for some time yet. And we'll be stuck with testing it and coding around all the things it can't do.
Like Twitter, which refuses to tolerate the thing:
Trying to use Twitter from IE11 results in the session being transferred to Microsoft Edge
Not using Twitter is perhaps a good thing, but if anyone using IE11 was wondering what that white gap on our home page is for, that's where the Twitter feed would be if you had a modern browser.
On a more positive note, we can confirm that our state-of-the-art systems are entirely spreadsheet free. Much of the data we ingest comes from such sources, but our loading systems are automated and intelligent. They automatically reconcile what's loaded with the source, ensuring that no row is left behind, ever.
