ExtJS 6: the best IE8-Modern Web Apps

Recently I wrote about my dissatisfaction with ExtJS 6 for being an "ExtJS 5 + Sencha Touch in disguise".

However, I came to realize that the beloved IE8 browser is essentially what's paying my bills. IE9 as well. It is easy to make jokes about how bad the browser is (compared to the latest and greatest):

A few weeks ago I was at SenchaCon 2015 and majority of the sessions I attended revolved around ExtJS6 and Sencha's responsive strategy. In summary: an effort has been made to converge ExtJS5 and Sencha Touch 2, but ultimately you will still be building a separate ExtJS and a separate Touch app. You do not end up with truly "one framework", which is what I hoped for.
