    Ahh, forgot that Windows 7 was shipped with IE 8. Well, then I guess there must be support
for it.
    
    I still suggest that ES5 shim and similar should be used where the browser doesn't support
a specific API. If the user is using any of the modern browsers, they should get the best
experience possible, while users with older browsers should still be able to use it.
    
    Mixing different frameworks just because you can could easily lead to confused developers
in the end. ECMAScript 5th Edition has this indexOf function, and since it´s possible to
shim it, I don't see any reason for why anything else should be used.
