Face it, IE11 is an outdated browser.


It is your choice not willing to keep up with modern browsers.

However:
► De-installing EDGE or renaming it's folder in systemapps can lead to instabilities.




► If you still don't want to use a modern browser on your computer,
you can use your mobile phone or tablet, or any other device, to support the campaign and support the Amiga.


Thank you for your support

Cheers,
Phil
I run the LTSB version of Windows 10, no bloat that is Cortana, Windows Store, Edge and pre-loaded APPS IE11 isn't outdated, it's part of the latest OS that is Windows 10

I don't use my phone for web browsing as it's not internet capable, don't own/want a tablet, only use a PC with IE11, not too much to ask is it I think it's a concerted effort by M$ to force everyone onto Edge by crippling IE11 and coercing sites to stop supporting it Looks like i'll be missing out on a lot of new things then if this continues, oh well!!

It is. Why do you insist on using a Microsoft browser at all? Big fan?

Only used IE since 1995, no reason to change now

Hi Guys,


The New Amiga 500 Case campaign is now at 85%, and we still have 3 days to make it!


The team would love to see all Amigans still on the fence, committing now and helping this campaign to reach it's goal!


More than 600 Backers have supported the campaign already, and they need your help to get their cases.


Thank you again for your support guys, let's make this happen!

Cheers,
Phil

$19k to raise in under 2 days. It's going right down to the wire!

I hope there's more people ready to bring it over the line or a hefty last minute order to come in. I backed for one case but can't afford/justify a second right now. The A1200 case is very high quality and I feel that the A500 is even more robust. So I'm expecting great things from these....

Yeah, I backed for two as soon as the campaign went live, partially due to the quality of the A1200 cases, I hope it can make it over the line

Sure is looking tight. Fingers crossed. I've backed one, can't really afford or justify more

I can't be the only person in the world who didn't even know about the A1200 ones until recently (the campaign started in like 2015?) and wants one and is completely reliant on the re-run some retailers are getting - maybe someone a bit more enterprising would wish to back a handful of these and sell them on over time.

I guess it's because they extended the campaign by the max IndieGogo allows but it is a shame to end on the 31st. The money may not show up on your card till the 1st anyway, but depends if you want to take the risk!

I stupidly lost my wallet on a night out last week (ah, I almost feel young again!) so I'm hoping the new one arrives today...

EDIT: removed off-topic.

It will sure be sad if this doesn't get up. Having these molds available opens up lots of options in the future other than people just wanting a fresh case for their A500.

It has been running for more than a month so you could see it as ending 30 days after payday. You could have just pledged by then.

Seems to be getting a bit of head wind here at the end which is not unexpected. I think it seems very possible now that it will make it past 100% as people empty their kids' piggy banks to make it happen.

Indie Retro News did a mass social media share this morning, and multiple forums and Tumblr! Seems to have helped, as now they are just 2% away from success



DamienD know's what happens when we do that haha
