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.
Our designers and developers must have the same references. Let's start with grey shades.
One of the main reasons for Design Library to exist, is to support the great work and co-operation between our designers and developers. This means providing one source of truth.
Lately we have been working on adjusting our grey shades to work across the organisation. A few things has happened:
Please make sure you use the visual identity package in Vanilla or Bootstrap as source for colours, so that next time we change, it will be automatic.
$white: #fff !default;
$gray-100: #f8f8f8 !default;
$gray-200: #e9e9e9 !default;
$gray-300: #dedede !default;
$gray-400: #cecece !default;
$gray-500: #adadad !default;
$gray-600: #868686 !default;
$gray-700: #494949 !default;
$gray-800: #333333 !default;
$gray-900: #1A1A1A !default;
$black: #000 !default;
The other topic is the grey background. There has been variations of greys used so far and although that is fine when it is a good reason behind it, let's start with having one as a standard. This is especially important when users can move across our platforms

(Hands up if you are impressed that I didn't write one single reference to 50 shades of grey)
