Feature request: remove obsolete browser support

Reported by dleffler | September 12th, 2017 @ 03:06 PM | in 2.4.2 (closed)

Most of our old browser support is for VERY obsolete browser versions which are no longer supported by their company, NOR recommended for use. It would speed up page loading to remove those 'tweaks' and the webshim support for old (non-html5) browsers.

    This move would also allow us to more easily implement jQuery 3.x as the supported version (we currently ship v1.12.4/v2.2.4 primarily for compatibility reasons. Current version of jQuery is v3.2.1

    recent push implements optional support for obsolete browsers (default is turned off). Therefore if OLD_BROWSER_SUPPORT is turned off we no longer load webshims or other browser hacks, and we load jQuery v3 instead of the v1/v2 hack based on browser version.
