    v2 v3  
    99With the new features that new browsers, OSes and devices introduce for accessibility reasons, IE11 for sure is actually a worse option for them.

    11 P.S. Btw I am not sure if the 3.39% shown for IE usage by W3 Counter is real as it may count the IE mode on Edge as IE11. Typically this mode is used by institutions to browse special sites or internal resources.

    1313However with the discovered vulnerabilities and things, MIcrosoft is pushing updates and governments would buy new licenses and upgrade very fast.
     14
     15Also Microsoft granted free upgrades extensions.
     16
     17A lot of state websites were vulnerable and they would be fastly refactored so the IE mode won't be used as much on Edge.
     18
     19That means that fake usage percentage would drop considerably.
     20
     21Reported IE11 usage is not real, it is based on large scale due to the IE mode on Edge for administrative and government purposes.
     22
     23Low-income and first-Internet access in the Third world now happens primarily with mobile phones, these phones primarily uses Chromium based browsers and Firefox, not IE11.
     24
     25So the idea for discriminating someone with low income is not true in that sense. IE11 users are not Third world users.
    1426
    1527I don't think the percentage is enough for you to support IE11.

    2133Stop using passive listeners so that mobile users could benefit from an improved performance.
     34
     35We need to "push" things in some sense as otherwise we would always be stuck in progress.
     36
     37Apple ditched 32-bit support for applications despite many people using apps that would probably never be updated. That happened both on their mobile and desktop platforms.
     38
     39There is some sort of "courage" needed to push things forward.
     40
     41The real base of IE11 which is not properly represented in the statistics is far smaller and you shouldn't take it into account.
