Internet & Networking "As promised, this version leaves behind the older Internet Explorer 6, 7, and 8 browsers. In return it is smaller, faster, and can be used in JavaScript environments where the code needed for old-IE compatibility often causes problems of its own. But don't worry, the jQuery team still supports the 1.x branch which does run on IE 6/7/8. You can (and should) continue to use jQuery 1.9 (and the upcoming 1.10) on web sites that need to accommodate older browsers."

JQuery is such a wonderful tool!

SO glad IE support (prior to 9.0) has been dropped!

The size (minified) dropped from 91KB to 82KB by simply removing support for the terrible nightmare that is Internet Explorer - how telling!

I just dropped into one of my pre-production webapps to replace 1.9 and haven't found any faults (in Chrome or Firefox), so I'm quite pleased!
