Did you finally stop supporting IE?

I notice that starting yesterday, I can't access the VTF web site with Internet Explorer again.

One machine with Win 7 another with Win 10, both IE 11. Everything worked fine up until yesterday. Now, if I navigate to the site, I see a flash of the home page and then it goes white and just churns away, never showing the page again. Sometimes, if I get the active topics to show up, I can click on a thread link and the same thing happens, a flash of the page then nothing but white.

My Android phone has no issue connecting and navigating the site. Also, I can use Chrome on both of the effected machines and have no problems.

BTW, IE does not seem to have issues with any other web sites, only VTF, so I assume somebody changed some code on your end either Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

I'm here right now with IE. Maybe you have a gremlin of some sort? Do you have a bell on your computer?

I use Mozzilla. When I use IE on VT pages load really slow. Way better/faster with Mozzilla.

Its been a while, but I seem to recall that IE was so integral to the OS, that not using it was a hassle.
Perhaps that is not the case any longer--or perhaps I am mistaken altogether.

I take no responsibility either way.

Not locked in, just preferred. I have Chrome installed now on my workstation, just to see if the problem was only with IE and that seems to be the case. I confirmed that by trying my tablet with IE and got the same result.

IE still works fine with everything else.

As a side note, I don't really care what anyone else is using and the milliseconds of difference in rendering pages doesn't really impact my usage. My guess is that some recent Windows update has created this issue and others who use IE that haven't gotten the most recent updates will not notice an issue. Even MS has gone away from IE in favor of Edge, which actually renders faster than Chrome and Firefox in testing, but I still prefer the interface in IE to Edge and Chrome. I haven't really used Firefox enough to comment on it. I also remember there being some kind of problem on Edge when I tried to post pictures and links on the VTF site. Chrome is usable, and I notice that the interface has been tweaked a little bit lately to feel more like IE.

I just thought I would point out my finding to the VTF admin in case they may have any concerns or any information to offer.

Probably better suited for the "Narcissus" thread. On topic comparisons and what not. Ya know since policing the forum is a thing now.

Yeah, obviously.

So why are you so concerned about what is being posted in the Forum help and Feedback forum? Do you have some info to offer or are you just checking to see if anyone posted something that might offend you?
