The IE8 crutch

My current project at work is a fully-responsive googlemaps-like single page application which involves working with LeafletJS for interactive maps and XMLHttpRequest2 for ajax file uploads. There is also some image cropping on the client and usual CSS3 stuff.

It looked like an interesting project with an opportunity to try new stuff until project manager sent me browser requirements: “fully functional in IE8”.
