Thanks Rick. That's great news. As I mentioned on the call, we're much
happier using and promoting a generic polyfill than building a
jQuery-specific polyfill. Kris Borchers, who was working on the jQuery
polyfill, has switched gears and is now testing Polymer with our
interactions branch, which will be based on pointer events. Do you want to
set up a conference call to get everyone introduced and discuss how to
start getting older IE support into Polymer?
