So long, IE8

On February 9th, 2015, we will no longer support Internet Explorer 8
Updated on:

At Less Annoying CRM, we're always working to improve our product by adding new features, and updating old ones. Some of these improvements rely on new technology which didn't exist when older web browsers were created, and that means that as our product evolves, it will stop working on old, out-of-date web browsers.

Later this month, we will start rolling out some improvements (more on that in a future post) which will greatly increase the speed and responsiveness of our software. Unfortunately, the new technology we're using to power these improvements doesn't work in Internet Explorer 8 (IE8). Which brings us to the point of this announcement...

As of February 9th, 2015, Less Annoying CRM will no longer work in Internet Explorer 8.

For those of you that don't follow the history of web browsers, IE8 is a very old version of Internet Explorer. Three new major versions have been released since IE8 (we're on IE11 now) and the technology in IE8 is incredibly out of date. Almost none of our customers are still using IE8, and I would guess that those who are using IE8 will thank us as soon as they switch to something more modern. The web is a much friendlier place if you're using a modern browser.

If you're using a version of Windows that came out after XP (so if you're using Vista, 7, or 8) then all you need to do is update to the latest version of internet explorer. Unfortunately Microsoft doesn't support more recent versions of IE on Windows XP, so if you're an XP user you'll need to switch to Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

If you have any questions, or you need help upgrading your browser, feel free to contact us. Stay tuned for an upcoming announcement about the improvements I mentioned earlier in this post!
