Support for Internet Explorer.
We’ll try to get IE 8 working and IE 9 looks very promising and standards compliant.
I like your product but I've had to cancel my subscription because of the lack of IE support.
The larger the corporate client is, the more likely they're stuck on older and older versions of IE. For a business product, the lack of IE support is kind of ludicrous. Make a less functional read-only version of the webapp, that's fine, but no one likes being confronted with a screen telling them to download a different browser.
You shuldn't use FoxOnFire either, cuz it's slower and way more retarded then IE and the shit's on fire. ^^
for clients that only use IE.. send them a PDF. make your lives easier.
You simply should not use IE. Why? is the worst browser. do yourself a favor and start using reliable browsers like Firefox and Chrome
When I develop intranet, I stop trying to be compatible with IE8 and lower I just use http://www.chromium.org/developers/how-tos/chrome-frame-getting-started .
This is essential. Some of our clients are big law firms, etc, and they don't have a choice about using IE. I agreed that IE is a cack browser, but I want my clients to be able to use Mockingbird online, not just via the PDF or PNG versions. It's important that they can experience it by clicking between pages, etc - it's much easier for them to understand this way which means less customer support required from me. When can we expect this to be live?

+1 to forcing clients to download a decent browser ;) </cheeky rant>

This is a let down for the product.
Exactly what Koray said above.
Very few web developers are going to be using IE, but its the clients thats the problem. They may be stuck on a corporate network or using an older pc.
I'm awaiting a client to get back to me right now, and i just know im going to have to ask them to go and download another browser, as they are not on quick broadband connection it may take them 30 mins to get it up and running. People are so busy these days and its not acceptable to ask them to do that.
This needs addressed before anything else.
I figure since one can export the mockups to PDF and PNG that there's not a whole lot of reason to support IE.
Negative vote, babe!
The only reason I disagree with all the negativity in this section is that sometimes we have to show our work to PM's and Managers who "can't be bothered with switching browsers". But then I can't bring myself to vote this up either.
Developers might not like the idea, but, as much as I dislike IE, in some company it is the standard browser because of compatibility issues.
When you "share" your mockingbird project so that your client can see it, and he only has IE... It's great to think about features for the developers using this tool, but don't forget the ones who are going to watch the mock ups.
Negative vote for this as well, there is more functionality which would be of more use than this as the developer can just use a different browser pretty easily.
What a terrible idea. Who the hell develops websites in IE? If IE does things right with IE9 then mockingbird should probably get support for it, BUT ONLY if they do everything at least on par with other modern browsers.
IE is a terrible browser! Don't Do it!
Another negative vote. (I actually voted for the negative voting feature in uservoice ;-)
I agree with goolic. Don't. It would take attention off developing other features and it's not onerous to ask project stakeholders to use a decent browser.
DON'T unless it wont make harder to speed mocking bird up and add interesting features.
If you voted this get a better browser Chrome, Safari, Firefox, IE 8 etc
