|New Website, Browser Compatability issue?|
| 1:04 pm on Jul 30, 2010 (gmt 0)|
We are planning a new website and the issue of compatability has come up.
It is to be a B2B B&M site, replacing a current site which is getting on a bit.
Currently the stats show:
1. Internet Explorer 70.96%
of which: 1. 8.0 64.44% - 2. 7.0 23.11% - 3. 6.0 12.45%(9% of total)
2. Firefox 17.67%
3. Chrome 5.92%
4. Safari 3.42%
5. Opera 1.14%
So my feeling is we should have compatibility from IE6 to IE8 and Firefox and Chrome.
What do you do / think ?

Those seem like high numbers for IE and especially IE8. I guess it must be all the corporate users.
Anyway, I'll just throw out that since Chrome and Safari are both webkit browsers, they should render the same. So if you have one on the list, you'll likely get the other "for free".
Generally speaking, for most situations, that's a manageable list. I might put IE6 on the list for testing, but just shoot for limited compatibility if necessary.

I don't like IE (and don't really know why :D) but I recommend Firefox for sure
