    @RobStyling Sadly, yes.
    You have to account for IE/Edge and Safari on desktop when developing websites, however many errors they throw at you.

    @JTBringe God forbid the client you are developing for uses IE exclusively.

    @RobStyling They're all special in their own way...
    In my experience, IE/Edge and Safari(desktop) are the troublemakers, in that there's always something that doesn't work in one of them.
    Sadly, they account for quite a lot of traffic amongst "regular" people, which is why you can't just write them off without excluding a lot of people.

    I tried to find usage stats on all the major browsers, and the results varied between 8.5% - 16% global market share split between IE/Edge and Safari, but the fact is that you have to make a website that works in all current browsers, even the shitty ones.

    That's not to say that I haven't encountered problems with Safari on iOS!
    I was making a website with a footer that had margin-bottom: 90px.
    Safari decided; "I DON'T CARE 'BOUT NO DAMN MARGIN, BITCH", which messed up the footer and a fixed element on the screen.
    Wasted at least two hours trying to fix a problem which should never have been a problem in the first place...

    tl;dr: Fuck Apple

    @JareBear138 In my experience, every damn client uses IE.
    I think it's a conspiracy.
    Every CEO/decision maker looking to hire a deceloper has to use work laptops with an outdated version of Windows and IE 11...
