Here at HeX Productions have been developing a little side project (SuperSend) and we are very close to release.

Test after test have been taking place and all seamed to be ok, until I passed it out HTML 5 Logoto a friend in a corporate organisation!

The silly thing I have been doing is testing in Chrome, Firefox and IE9 clearly forgetting that not everyone has modern browsers. The aim of this project was to give something to these people in organisations with email issues and these are the same people with IE8 and some IE7.

This brings us to the main point, how can developers help organisations when they are so behind the times with web browsers? 

Truth is, it’s tough.HTML5 give us so much but Internet Explorer refused to move forward as early as the others. A lot of fall-backs are needed and with our fingers crossed these can slowly get removed when IE gets updated.

Check Your Browser

Ever in doubt there are some cracking sites to help, such as http://html5readiness.com and http://html5test.com.
