Hello Shape5 Community,

We have tried to hang onto support for IE7/8 for as long as we could, because we know that are still a few users out there that use these browsers. However, that number is currently less than 1% of the world using these browsers, so it is time for us to say goodbye at Shape5 to IE7/8. IE7 was originally released in 2006, and today in 2014 most users are running at least IE9 while most are running IE11. IE7/8 lack many of the CSS3 and HTML5 functions that are needed with modern web design.


- All products created up to this date still support these versions, but support for any new releases will be limited
- New products going forward will now only support IE9+.

Microsoft has also announced they will stop supporting IE8 in 17 months to focus getting users the newest versions of their products. This ensures the best performance and security updates for the future.
