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."

But not on some corporate intranets. And the usual response to this is, 'well, if they coded to standards ...' But remember that a lot of these sites were developed in the mid-to-late 90's, so they're now 10-15 years old

How should I put it? Oh yeah: fuck 'em.
Really. If your IT department is so out of touch with reality and current technologies that they won't allow a modern browser alongside their stone-age IE then fuck 'em.
