We often have customers with a need to cater to old versions of IE browsers like the one you're using. But we're not a big fan of IE ourselves...so we've elected to save some time in the development of our website and not code a myriad of customizations to support IE. Our site (and just about anyone else's for that matter) is better viewed in anything but IE8 or below.
The rapid adoption of HTML5 and, in particular, svg and canvas elements, has led to extraordinary access to graphical presentations of data without need for proprietary backend systems. Let Red Hammer help you develop your data driven websites and visualization tools.
