We don’t support Internet Explorer, and we’re calling that a feature

So Paydirt, a time tracking and invoicing web app, just ditched support for IE completely and landed on the front page of Hacker News. Cool, but read the fine print: 1.63% of their traffic is from IE. Repeat, less than 2%. For Paydirt’s browser distribution, this is a no-brainer. But ditching IE is impossible for most, if not nearly all web sites out there.
