An article (in german language) about the payment of around 120.000EURO for further support of Windows-XP for the german government let me to think about the support [edit]of this piece of software[/edit] for outdated browsers.

Some HTML-construction in the forum software is only necessary to give old browsers access to some form of CSS-formatting. For newer browsers wich supports CSS-3-features the HTML and the CSS could be some bits simpler at many places.

I know that some installations have many visitors with old browsers (e.g. because of their companies environment). On the other hand, the support of Windows-XP ended on april the 9th 2014. Is this an issue nowadays? Or should we leave the old crap behind us?

Tschö, Auge
