We’ll stop supporting Internet Explorer 11 starting July

Internet Explorer 11 has been outdated for years now. To ensure the best experience for our users, SyncForce needs to move on and decided to drop support for the old Microsoft browser.

If you’re still using IE 11, please install one of the following alternative browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox (both recommended), or Microsoft Edge.

Stop IE11 support

Browser support demands considerable resources at development

SyncForce wants its software to be well prepared for the future. That’s why we strive at allocating as many resources as possible to promising new technologies. One item demanding considerable resources at SyncForce is the support of multiple browser products and versions.

That’s the reason why SyncForce regularly revises the range of browsers that should be compatible with our products.

IE 11 is supported at the expense of usability and new features

For the development teams at SyncForce, supporting the outdated Internet Explorer 11 means a great deal of double work, and sometimes even concessions with regard to user experience. Browsers have evolved far beyond what IE11 could do in 2013. Nowadays, browsers are full platforms for web applications, compared to the former web page viewers they’ve once been. Especially mobile browsing has introduced many innovations that are vital to a pleasant mobile experience, with only a few of these features available for IE11.

Sticking to IE 11 for you means piling up technical debt

However, Internet Explorer 11 isn’t only a resource issue for SyncForce. To our customers, IE 11 is a risk too. The Edge predecessor

  • doesn’t behave according to web standards;
  • hasn’t received feature updates in six years;
  • doesn’t get fixes for feature bugs.
