IE8... released in 2009

Microsoft is the only major browser vendor to believe that a 3-year-old browser is acceptable on a supported OS (XP). Google, Mozilla, Apple, Opera support XP with their latest browsers.

I agree it's too soon to drop support for IE8, but I'd love to see more pressure put on MS for leaving XP+IE users stuck with a second rate browser.

Yea, MS has in general never released new versions of IE for a version of Windows that entered extended support, and the extended support phase lasts for five years!
