Drop Grade A support for IE10
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

IE10 is the least used version of IE (behind 9,8,6 & 4! : https://analytics.wikimedia.org/dashboards/browsers/#all-sites-by-browser) with 0.07% of page views.

It is quite similar in features to IE11 but does still have some bugs that don't affect IE11 (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/browser-support-internet-explorer/) and is much harder to debug as the F12 tools were only updated in IE11.

I would second this. IE 10 is very rare since only Windows 8 still has it as a maximum version, and Windows 8 is aggressively EOL (Windows Update offers to update you to Windows 8.1, which has IE 11).
