I got this: You are using an unknown browser that imitates Safari 5.0.6 on Mac OS X 10.5

I am running Safari 5.0.6 on Mac OS X 10.5.

Oh, and 304 points. Good B average.

376 of 555 for IE11 on Windows 8.1 for me.

Chrome does much better, but it's my secondary browser.

Firefox 32.0.3 ON Windows 7 scores 475

I take it you are using HTML 5 and CSS 3 for the new upgrade?

Yes, but providing backwards support for XP/IE8 has been problematic.

Yes, but each browser type has a -webkit or something similar to get it to work. I have made my determination that XP is outdated and that there are enough sites that will not work with IE8 and lower that When I do website, I do my best try but I put best viewed on and list the browser versions.

I like XP but have finally decided it is time for the switch and have taken the attitude that if you don't want to run a safer browser then view the site the way it shows. the webkit is just a line or two added to your source file and is an easy fix for most issues.

I also have friends often ask me to work on their computers. If it has XP. I now refuse... It isn't doing them justice to support XP.

Except when you drill down to IE8, or heaven forbid, IE7 or IE6. Those CSS tags only exist in certain domains, which generally doesn't include them, and JavaScript hacks like html5shiv and respond and such don't work well on stuff like XP. I'm about ready to give the boot to XP and IE8(-). I've spent way too much time trying to make the updated site backwards compatible ... and I would actually like to switch the codebase to the new stuff sometime soon so we can all move forward to bigger and better things.

So yes, death to XP/IE8. Please.

If Microsoft no longer supports XP, there is no reason you should.

There is no reason to support Microsoft in general. There is enough Linux and Mac in the world to go around. I am Microsoft free for ten years.

Well, about 40% of the traffic to this site use IE. (The largest percent of any browser.) And about 12% of that still uses IE8 or lower.
