PBworks Phasing Out IE8 Support Starting 1/31/2014

22 Oct

In March 2009, Microsoft introduced Internet Explorer 8.  At the time, the browser was state of the art.  Today, over 4.5 years later, IE8 is looking dated, and the usage numbers reflect it.

In the broad market, IE8 now has less than 10% market share, and we see a similar proportion in our own statistics.  Meanwhile, Google Apps dropped support for IE8 in November of *2012* and Google Analytics is dropping support by the end of 2013.

Therefore, we plan to end official support for PBworks on IE8 on January 31, 2014 (we’re giving you an extra month in comparison to Google).  This doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to use IE8 to access the service, but it does mean that we will stop testing to ensure full compatibility.  This will enable us to maintain and improve the service more efficiently.

If corporate policy requires you to use IE8, please contact your PBworks account representative.

    Dear Chris Yeh,

    Thank you for the wonderful PBWorks!
    “PBworks is currently offline for a scheduled upgrade”, it states today.
    How long do you think it will be offline?
    And will it be safe for storing and sharing information?

    Yours gratefully in Helsinki

    I think everything said was very reasonable. But, what about this?

    what if you were to create a killer title? I am
    not saying your information isn’t good, but what if you added something to maybe grab a person’s attention? I mean PBworks Phasing Out
    IE8 Support Starting 1/31/2014 | PBworks Official Blog is kinda vanilla.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post headlines to get viewers to
    click. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring
    your website a little bit more interesting.
