A touchy subject

It's been nearly 10 years since Apple launched the first touch screen smartphone in 2007. Did you know however, that the first touch screen was actually invented in 1965? That's nearly fifty years ago to the day! Yet I wonder, would anybody have believed it, if told that by the year 2015, there'd be more touch-screen enabled smart phones and tablets, than human beings on the planet? Or by 2020, it is estimated that there will be 4.3 internet connected 'things' for every person?! That's something like 33 billion devices, with a hell of a lot of touch screens.

It's March 2016 - what browsers and operating systems should we be supporting?

A regular client asked me which browsers (version numbers) and devices would be supported by the new responsive web application, which we are currently building out. I was about to fire off an email in reply, when I realised that I'd been copy/pasting the same answer to this question for the past three years. How time flies when you're building websites... so I did a bit of research and a sweep around the office to get a new consensus on Wiliam's position.
