PeopleTools 8.60 PTF: Where is IE 11?

I was just reviewing the fantastic PeopleTools 8.60 Highlights video and noticed something missing from the PTF Execution/Runtime Options. Here is a screenshot

Do you see something missing? Where is Internet Explorer? Internet Explorer retired on June 15, 2022, and is no longer a "supported" browser (see MOS Doc 2834591.1). Releases of 8.59 still allowed us to use IE for recording and playback as long as we chose IE from the browser list, even after support ended. But as you can see, IE 11 is not in the 8.60 screenshot. This is an important consideration as you evaluate PeopleTools 8.60. What do you think of this change? Share your thoughts in the comments! Here is a thought that I have: Dropping IE 11 as a playback and record browser means the PeopleTools team may use modern CSS features, such as Flexbox and CSS variables, without concern for legacy browsers.

Not sure how to get started with PTF? Here is what we recommend: As a developer, start by recording regression tests. Every time you apply a Drop Zone, Event Mapping, or Page and Field Configuration, record a simple regression test to prove your alteration still works. This approach will help you build an amazing maintainable regression test library over time.
