You're comparing apples to oranges. A more correct assertion: By late 2012, jQuery will still be supporting a browser replaced by MS in 2006 but by early 2013 it won't support a browser that was only replaced by MS in 2011.

It's still a valid point, but comparing release dates with replacement dates just hurts the whole argument.




You are right.

Probably the best way would have been: By late 2012, jQuery will still be supporting a browser released in 2001 but by early 2013 it won't support a browser that was released in 2009.

jQuery 1.x supports all Microsoft browsers released over the past 11 years, while jQuery 2.x will only support Microsoft browsers released a little over a year before today.
