The last version of Internet Explorer, version 11, was released on October 17, 2013. This is a very long time ago when taking into account the rapid development of web technologies. These days it is often difficult and time consuming to get modern technologies to work well in this old browser. More and more frameworks are dropping support, and even Microsoft themselves has announced that they will fully drop support for IE in their own services in 2021.
Consequently, we have decided to not include support for IE in the Design Library website.
As stated in Brand Guidelines, a fifth element is a visual device used to signal and enhance a brand.
Our fifth element is not a single pattern or graphic. It is an idea. Something ever-changing and adaptable. Something we can grow with and that can grow with us. Something that is always relevant, always up-to-date while never becoming old.
