Whether you feel nostalgia or relief, it’s time to say goodbye to IE7 after 7 years in existence. Coincidence or not, it’s also been 7 years since we launched the first version of our website, and today we are welcoming a new version of xhtmlized.com.
Internet Explorer 7 was released by Microsoft in October 2006, just after our company was founded. While IE7 was a certain improvement from IE6, for example by its support for transparent PNGs, IE7 still was the culprit of many CSS bugs, resulting in increased front-end development effort and cost of building websites.
Seven years later, XHTMLized is the first PSD to HTML company to completely drop support for IE7.
Why leave IE7 behind
With Internet Explorer 7’s market share at less than 2%, often even less in some markets, and companies like Google and Facebook dropping support for IE7, the browser is becoming more and more irrelevant.
Everyone deserves better than fighting IE7
The cost for supporting IE7 is high, yet the value of supporting the browser is low. Our developers will bring more value to projects by focusing their attention on new development standards like responsive design. A win for everyone!
Welcome our new website
Today we are happy to announce the launch of our new website to our clients, coworkers, fans and friends. The new website represents our company and its services in a more comprehensive way, and also merges our blog with the main company website.
The amazing illustrations seen throughout site and this blog is original artwork provided to XHTMLized by HEROized artist, Adi Darda Gaudiamo.
Thanks everyone for your support and we are looking forward to future collaborations!
