Solution
Only in very very rare cases. In other words - not worth it.

Regardless of the year, if these bring you income more than the costs of maintaining the sites for these browsers, then of course makes sense.

Blah... better take care of the users with bad eyesight, they are much more than users Explorer.
I support IE scored even 5 years ago.
Well so you made the decision, subjects emotions, due to his personal dislike of M$, and not out of rational considerations. - efrain.Rolfso commented on June 8th 19 at 16:49
why the emotions? There's a bunch of stuff that is more useful to implement than support for IE. - paula.Ste commented on June 8th 19 at 16:52
better for what? for you? for the coolness of your website? to realize that you are a super programmer and can this way and that and in prisyadku and dance - Yes, probably.
but in order that more users could use your site - no.
that's why I say - you have emotional, not a rational approach.
users your useful things on the drum. they can voice HTML without any JS to live. - efrain.Rolfso commented on June 8th 19 at 16:55
want to users use of the website, under mobile phone or adapt it for people with low vision adapt. There is a 101 version of what can be done to reach a wider audience than the mythical users of IE. - paula.Ste commented on June 8th 19 at 16:58

1. Your website audience can be VERY different. I have statistics on several projects. Where support for IE6 is even relevant. ;) And where all the trendy modern for some reason.

2. Depends on the budget and of the value of the loss of the visitor for you. Again, in different projects individually.

3. I wouldn't. In order to minimize the cost of development. Because in the most General case, this allows great save.
