Not surprising. Everyone is leaving IE support behind.

Looking at, as of last month, IE usage was 2.7% of the market in the US and only 1.66% worldwide. Maintaining compatibility for an all but deprecated browser is a lot of work. The actual users of IE have fallen to the point where it just isn't worth it.

Subject: IE no longer working for many of IBM's newer support pages

IE no longer working for many of IBM's newer support pages.
Older tech docs are fine.
Only the title of the page is displaying, not the body.
Our support folks tested the page with IE, it appears there are code errors not be handle by IE.

I also had IE issues with the HMC, IE wasn't always updating the screens as they changed.

Time for browser default change.
Edge, FF, Chrome,

Any thoughts from the group on browser choices.

Thank You
