Well today at work I made the decision. FUCK IE7 we are no longer going to support it. This should greatly speed up future web projects for me.
If clients cry about it then they can pony up for the increased development costs.
Of course tho I can then pull out their Google Analytic stats and show them that the % of visitors using IE7 is less than %5 (on many its under %3). It is just not worth the extra headache.
I dont even care if things degrade gracefully. If the clowns that don't update their browsers keep visiting busted websites then maybe that will push them to actually updating their browsers.
