A website should work in every browsers, but some older browsers (like Intenet Explorer 8 and below) don’t support modern features. Web developers often employ ‘fallbacks’ for older browsers. If you visit this page in IE8 you will see an static image instead of a dynamic graph.
IE8 current accounts for 6.27% of internet traffic. This will continue to shrink, but in the mean time a fallback is used to make sure old browsers still see a chart.
