In line with what some of the other people are saying, I have 10%...I say again, 10% of my user base for an app I manage that still uses IE. To say those people aren't worthy of a good experience is incredibly elitist. I chose my stack knowing full well I'd have to support older browsers.

As mentioned by Facundo,

you're punishing people that are not tech savvy enough to even know what a browser is

There are no carte blanche statements in web development, and saying stuff like is in this article is a detriment to what we are doing as developers.

For sure. I think Areknawo is working off the assumption of a 1.5% global usage stat though, I'd include IE support if 10% of my user base was on it too.
