I read this article:
I work on new responsive web for client.
I am preparing contract. Just not sure how to cover the part which states in what browsers and what versions it displays properly.
I read an article which said “cover last 3 version” of each browser to be safe in your contract.
And yes, this issue is mostly related to IE browser.
I will be using HTML5, CSS3, MEDIA QUERIES so I would like to include in the contract only IE 9 and above.
I use this to show client current versions:
How do you guys go about this when working for a client ?March 4, 2014 at 5:05 pm #164692
It is very small client only 1000 visits a year in average but you are right. It is about principle and logic.
Looking into Google Analytics of the site:

- IE visits total in last 3 years = 887
- v. 8 = 458
- v.9 = 240
- v.10 = 91
- v.7 = 60
- v.11 = 29
- v.6 = 9
Well most visits are from CHROME, 2nd is IE where v.8 is dominant.
6 months: IE = 160 visits
- v. 8 = 49
- v. 10 = 45
- v. 9 = 33
- v. 11 = 29
- v. 7 = 4
Question is if to support it or not. And the owner himself does not care about IE much and uses FireFox anyway :)
So I guess that 100 visits (declining) / year in IE 8 could be safely ignored and the focus put on developing the site in IE9 + above.March 5, 2014 at 1:44 am #164741
You are right I am just being lazy I guess. Will be using TWBS anyway: http://getbootstrap.com/getting-started/
So the HTML 5 and MQ are taken care of anyway.
