+Christian Heilmann: "... Humans hate feeling stupid and we do anything not to appear it or show it.
... The web is, sadly enough, littered with unhelpful error messages and assumptions that it is the user’s fault when they can’t consume the thing we built. ... Don’t tell the user when things go wrong – they can not fix what you messed up." https://www.christianheilmann.com/2016/01/16/dont-tell-me-what-my-browser-cant-do/
Chances are, your guess is wrong! you are obviously in the wrong place Arrogance towards possible customers never pays out – as shown in “Pretty Woman”. There is nothing more frustrating than being capable of something and not getting a chance to do it. The same goes for being blocked out from ...

+Christian Heilmann: "There won't be any new IE versions. It's all Edge now."

Microsoft officially announced dropping all IE support, except IE11 for now.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/WindowsForBusiness/End-of-IE-support
After January 12, 2016, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for older versions of Internet Explorer.

* Microsoft Vista doesn't support IE10, either IE11 upgrade. This announcement perhaps contradicts its support policy expected till April 11, 2017.
* IE11 said to be supported till end of Windows 10, October 14, 2025. Personally I don't think that IE11 will hold even for few years.

Mozilla fails Firefox OS (mobile), announces:
"[...] we will stop offering Firefox OS smartphones through carrier channels."
http://www.quirksmode.org/blog/archives/2015/12/firefox_os_is_d.html

Update: Firefox OS development for phones is officially discontinued https://discourse.mozilla-community.org/t/firefox-os-connected-devices-announcement/6864
Last week, after reading this article, I tweeted that Firefox OS is dead. There was some pushback, since despite some important updates the OS will continue to be developed. However, an OS can be functionally dead without development being ceased, and that's what I meant in my tweet.

Starting January 1, 2016 secure Internet will be shutdown on Windows XP, Android 2.3, all legacy devices and browsers, because of lack of SHA-2 support.

SHA-1 is deprecated and replaced with SHA-2 standard.

https://blog.cloudflare.com/sha-1-deprecation-no-browser-left-behind/
"... will begin issuing warnings and eventually completely distrust connections ... starting January 1, 2016, you will no longer be able to get a new SHA-1 certificate from most certificate authorities." +CloudFlare proposes fallback support for legacy browsers with new Legacy Verified (LV) certificate.
After December 31, 2015, SSL certificates that use the SHA-1 hash algorithm for their signature will be declared technology non grata on the modern Internet. Google's Chrome browser has already begun displaying a warning for SHA-1 based certs that expire...

Let's Encrypt being abused by malvertisers that leaded to banking Trojan.

"Let's Encrypt issued a subscriber certificate that was used for distributing malware and, when informed, Let's Encrypt declined to revoke the certificate. The subscriber certificate at issue was an integral part of a criminal attack to install banking malware on computers."
