Hi,
We have used Limesurvey as a survey platform for a widespread community in Europe. Some of our users still use Internet Explorer as their preferred browser. If we want to interoperate and be inclusive towards survey designers who use IE, have we any chance that browser compliance will change in the future?
Anyway, is there any information about what doesn't work if you use IE for designing a survey through Limesurvey 3.x interface?

Microsoft security chief warns people ‘not to use its own Internet Explorer’ as the program is ‘outdated’

My opinion :
1. yes for public part (always , even ELinks or Lynx or Emacs/W3 must be supported)
2. never for admin part (I prefer to work on supporting ELinks or any text web browser …)

Very low. If someone provides fixes, it might will be considered. But I don't see anybody investing. Even Microsoft will start killing IE once Edge is running on Chrome engine. I wouldn't invest as a Limesurvey developer in IE. Users, which are on IE, might consider sponsoring testing and fixing.

I'm not aware of a page which documents the unsupported parts. It's more that nobody is testing LS against IE anymore. I haven't seen many complains about LS 3 and IE from the survey designer side. But most won't use IE if they are not forced to.
