Yeah, i know. But look in the statistics for webbrowsers like Net
Applications [1]. Currently they claim that 50% of all browsers are
IE-based. And only 12% are counted for IE9. [2] Most of them are IE6-IE8
and none of these are truely HTML5 capable.

Typo3 should support IE8 until at least 2 years after a Windows version
with an HTML5 capable browser is released to public. Most people that
buy a brand new computer today get Windows7 with has IE8 on board. Do do
not believe its a good idea to exclude all of these users from a
comfortable way to upload their images to their websites.
