Comment (by adamsilverstein):

 > In my experience, Statcounter is pretty solid.
 Great! I missed the follow up conversation.

 > Having a fallback to a browser shim for a few years sounds like a great
 idea to me.

 The shim works well in my testing, my biggest concern is making sure the
 impact is minimal for supporting browsers, ie. not loading the shim unless
 we need it.

 We could also (eventually) offer the shim as a plugin site owners could
 install if they know their audience needs it - similar to the classic
 editor plugin - then support that for a limited time frame.
