Microsoft has killed support for those older browsers as of January 12. Your alternatives include upgrading to IE 11, switching to a rival browser or jumping to Windows 10 to get the Edge browser.
Or install Windows Vista, since IE9 on Windows Vista is still supported (as that is the highest available version for Vista).

area51 is used as the main testing ground it is always on the current version weather that be a release or just the current progress in the repo.
Thank you hanakin :)

You guys have excellent older browser support...... I think your SW and Xenforo are 2 of the newer ones that show up the best on IE6 :) (Im using MyIE2 in front but MyIE2 is only an IE add-on)

yes but different forums can have different permissions set even though I am a mod. You can have one mod level permission on a forum and it will list you as a mod on that forum.

bump on this discussion as its been awhile and edge is picking up traction not to mention IE11. So where does that leave us?

I would vote for removing support for IE9 & IE10 thoughts?

Any new style should aim at supporting only supported versions. The average lifetime of a style should nowadays be longer than that of a browser version. Therefore I'm all for dropping support of IE9 & 10.
