A startup 4ormat drop ie support and save over $100K

In 2008 4ormat made the brave decision to drop IE support and since they believe they have saved over $100,000 in doing so!

Would you drop IE support today?

If I was creating a web application today would I drop IE support? The answer is not clear cut. If I was creating a web application for the less technically savvy or for large businesses then I would probably still want to provide a solution with IE support included even if that ment giving them a cut down version with less features.

However If i was providing a new App for the more feature hungry audience who want there tools to sing and dance etc then I would probably focus on the more standards compliant browsers and drop IE support for older versions at least.
