|What about the globe icon?|
Well, maybe that's a little unfair. My comic doesn't support it because it has no support for SVG images, which are a major part of the comic's design. Also, CSS3 support is not there, which makes things look pretty bad. I just don't have time to develop a completely different site design for the roughly 9% of Internet users still on the antique browser. I doubt they are my target audience anyway (actually, only about 10% of my comic audience uses any version of IE).
|Yeah, that's the one I remember|
But for further reading, look at these:

Microsoft IE8 browser support ending in 17 months
Now there are even rumors that Microsoft will replace Internet Explorer with a totally new browser in Windows 10! While you might think that retiring the frustrating surfing tool is great news, just wait until you have to support TWO DIFFERENT weird non-standards-compliant Microsoft browsers instead of just one! It's not like every computer on earth is going to suddenly upgrade to Windows 10. There will be people hanging around on Windows 7 for years, and I doubt they'll get this new browser.
In case you are wondering, it's not until Internet Explorer 10 that 100% of my comic is supported. It does look fine in IE9 though. I just don't know what happened to Internet Explorer. I remember it being much better than Netscape Navigator 4, but it lost its way somewhere around version 5. Nobody stays on top forever. I wonder when someone will come out with a better browser than Chrome...
