jQuery 2.0 will drop support for IE8

With both Google and Facebook already dropping support for IE8, this makes a lot of sense. It’s more leverage for developers to argue against IE8 support. I recently added a functionality to freshstep.com that makes IE7 users jump through a hoop to log in. It’s bad enough getting all the code to work on IE7, but pulling in Facebook’s SDK means that most users see the little yellow triangle warning about javascript errors.

How correlated?: jQuery conference 2013 Europe Vienna review (part 1)

Some breaking news that popped out: jQuery is going to DROP SUPPORT FOR OLDS INTERNET EXPLORER (6,7 and 8) !!! in it’s 2.0 (big applause from the audience).  It should be noted however that IE9 and IE10 are much more standards compliant so they will be automatically supported.
