No IE9 for Windows XP Users

16th September 2010

As designers we’re always keen to push web technology further but understand that us having the latest browser doesn’t mean the user does. It’s for these reasons we test all our sites in the lowest common denominator, with additional non-essential features available to those who can view them. IE9 is the last modern browser to the party and we’re looking forward to seeing what it has to offer.

The IE9 beta was released yesterday and I’m itching to get Windows 7 installed on my Mac so I can start testing. I currently have Windows XP installed but IE9 won’t be available for the OS, though it’s probably just as well as my XP test bed has a vanilla copy of IE6 and I wouldn’t want to lose that. Many users are happy with XP and don’t have the need to upgrade or are unable to due to departmental reasons, as designers this means we need to push forward with new technology while ensuring we always support the old.
