It may be worth prototyping what it could look like for some pages.
We have the ability, for example, to compare alternative versions of
the same page and see which one is better at achieving some measurable
goal, e.g., download conversion rate, time on page, abandon rate, etc.

But the main concern, I think, is that we don't get too far ahead of
the browser capabilities in use by our users.  But if we want a rough
estimate, here is what I see for % of visits for all browsers that
represent 1% or more of the visits:

1.	Chrome	23.0.1271.97	23.92%	
2.	Firefox	17.0		18.19%
3.	Internet Explorer	9.0	13.56%
4.	Internet Explorer	8.0	8.70%
5.	Internet Explorer	10.0	4.48%
6.	Safari	536.26.17		3.89%
7.	Firefox	18.0	2.93%
8.	Chrome	24.0.1312.52	2.05%
9.	Firefox	16.0	1.63%
10.	Safari	534.57.2	1.59%
11.	Internet Explorer	7.0	1.51%
12.	Opera	12.12	1.29%
13.	Chrome	23.0.1271.101	1.26%

Note that together is only 85% of our visitors.  The "long tail" has
older versions.  With over 5 million website visitors/month, even
losing access for 1% means 50,000 users blocked.
