@media doesn't work in IE8.
While IE10 causes the least of our problems, it is still the worst of the major ones and always causes queasy stomachs upon opening.
We actually write code in IE8 first. We know that browser will struggle the most but, if we can get it working there, then it will be easy to get code/markup working in the more modern browsers and then do 'progressive enhancements'. If you test in a good browser first, Firefox/Chrome, then you risk your code not working in IE and that's when you have to find workarounds.
All versions of IE almost always need "adjustments" that aren't needed in any other browser. It's the worst on the planet.
