IE8 getting it to work with Media Queries?

  • # March 29, 2013 at 8:53 am

    I’ve got a quick question, has anybody got some experience with Respond.js and does it generally work quite well with getting IE8 to work with Media Queries?

    My first question would be what are you trying to target with the media queries? If it’s mobile then you don’t need to as there are zero devices running IE8.

    Other than that just ignore anything below 960px.

    He may be referring to a mobile-first approach where you would need media-quries to work in old IE, otherwise they will get mobile styles only.

    Yes Respond.js is the best tool currently for this (to my knowledge). Alternatively, you could create an IE specific stylesheet

    Take care
