Re: Get your umbrellas ready
@asksqn: Especially here in India where government websites go "Please view this page in IE6 or higher to be able to print out the form". This really is disturbing. No wonder they'll have to change the way they work because spartan isn't back compatible neither is it Kernel compatible with IE 11.

Get your umbrellas ready
When MS pulls the plug on IE, I predict a poop storm of biblical proportion where government web sites are concerned.  The feds are still operating on Windows 95 technology.

Browser compatibility
"Developer feedback also indicated that there wasn't a marked difference between how websites should be developed on Internet Explorer 11 and in its new browser. Microsoft notes that for developers, the new engine in Project Spartan will work with modern Web technologies. In an effort to keep it "evergreen," there will not be new document modes or compatibility views in the future."

Kelly, that's a great thing, compatibility. One of the major issues facing by web developers are browser compatibility, if MS is taking care about it then rest is assured.
