Graded Browser Support Update
This post announces an update to Graded Browser Support. The GBS page on the YUI site always has the most current information. This post includes a list of primary changes, the updated chart of browsers that receive A-grade support, and our GBS forecast.
This GBS update adds A-grade support for IE8 on XP and Vista. A-grade support is discontinued for Firefox 3 on Win 2000 and Mac 10.4, keeping the A-grade testing surface at 15 platforms.
- Initiated A-grade support for IE 8, Win XP
Initiated A-grade support for IE 8, Win Vista

Discontinued A-grade support for Firefox 3, Mac 10.4
Incremented supported version of Opera to 9.6
- Incremented supported version of Safari to 3.2
|Win 2000||Win XP||Win Vista||Mac 10.4.||Mac 10.5.|
The dagger symbol (as in "Firefox 3.") indicates that the most-current non-beta version at that branch level receives support. Put another way, means "the most recent" instead of "all."
In addition to the effective-immediately changes, we’re forecasting the discontinuation of A-grade support for Firefox 2 in the GBS update toward the end of June 2009.
