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.
This adjustment is a follow-up from December when we changed the height of labels.
The height on our form components have been adjusted to 44 px:
This applies to both desktop and mobile contexts.
The reasoning for this is that when labels got bigger (see Change log 2018-12-11), the form components followed in size to match them.
The mobile click area also needed to be bigger and we decided to have them all the same size to simplify (=easier to do it right).
