ie8-logoFrom 1st February 2013 we will no longer support the use of Internet Explorer 8 within our Admin Console.  

This will effect less than 2% of our users.

We will also stop checking client websites in IE8 as a matter of course.

Why can't we support it forever? 

Technologies and browsers move on, and we want to take adantage of them.

IE8 has limited support for HTML 5 and other web technologies that we want to use and give our users the best possible experience.
