I’m quite surprised that IE7 is being dropped especially on such a popular website. However, I commend them on moving forward. IE7 is now over 6 years old and estimates are that less than 3% of users are still using IE7. That’s less than Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9, Chrome 22, Firefox 15, Firefox 16, and even Internet Explorer 6 – which is slowly dying off, but not fast enough.

As a reminder, if you’re using Windows 7, you can download Internet Explorer 10 Release Preview here.
