Beware - this post contains no code, and is opinionated. Its my blog so its my opinion, but I love to learn, so please correct me if I have my facts wrong.
Last week at work, a co-frontender had a weird problem that only showed in IE8 and older. It turned out to be because of load order of the html5shim and some other scripts. We talked about the need for the very popular shim, and I figured I would turn my arguments into a(this) blogpost.
Basically, this is how i feel: Don’t use the “new” html tags unless you really need to! Turns out: hat the tags that you NEED, bring functionality (video, audio etc) won’t work with just the shim.
They are like that pretty guest you didn’t invite to your birthday, but who showed up anyway and didn’t bring any presents…
Maybe its me, but I just don’t see the point?
