As certs will have to move to SHA-2 or above, that means the XP users won't be able to connect any more - not an issue as far as I am concerned
Some of us want to have a website to serve all paying customers, even if they use an old operating system.
Amazon is probably the best example - any browser can shop on Amazon, since long ago Amazon realized that annoying their customers with the latest buzzword ajax "responsive" junk doesn't sell their product.
Never mentioned anything about ajax or responsive etc, only about support for SNI. Also, but of selective quoting on the part about loosing XP customers, you forgot to include the bit where I said "would rather loose XP based people that those who use the latest Chrome builds etc and won't connect because of security alerts". - in other words if one of those two sets has to be lost for some reason, I would select to loose the older XP set. Obviously it would be best to loose neither, but given a enforced choice then the XP users are toast (and they count for less than 0.5% of our users, so really not going to loose any sleep over that)
