Internet Explorer "It's never good to scare away your customers. It's even worse if you don't realize you're doing it. That was me. Like most folks in the developer community, it's been years since I last used Internet Explorer as my daily browser. Oh sure, we all keep copies around for web development work, but Firefox, Chrome, and Safari now rule the web roost. Unfortunately, that was not the case with the Blurity userbase." Wise lesson from Jeff Keacher.

Did you even read the thing? His application has nothing to do with browser, it is a local executable.

Did you read the thing?

It turned out that 43% of the visitors to were using IE.

But it was worse than that, since Blurity runs only on Windows, and 86% of visitors were using Windows, so almost 50% of the eligible visitors were using IE.

About half of my sales were coming from IE users. That’s right: those 20% of IE users, representing 10% of my total traffic, were accounting for 50% of my sales.
