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."

I always find this funny.

It about corporate intranets. A lot of stuff (and I unfortunately contributed to it at the time) is IE specific.

TBH I don't see how a lot of this is affects jQuery.

* A lot of these sites existed before Prototype Framework (which was the inspiration for jQuery).
* Open source stuff is largely frowned upon.
* Tools like browsium (Multiple IEs for basically Windows Vista and above in a corp environment) exist.
* I think people should be able to use any browser as long as it suites them. I don't use IE ... I know a lot of people that do who aren't techy and who am I to force them to use another browser?
