You can have WebSocket for IE8/9 via Flash plus https://github.com/gimite/web-socket-js
and for IE6-9 with http://code.google.com/chrome/chromeframe/

With a Hybi-10+/RFC6455/Hixie-76 capable WebSocket server implementation,
plus above, you basically can support any relevant browser .. so is it really worth
implementing SockJS server-side, redoing all the semiworking hacks that try to
shoehorn bidirectional messaging into HTTP request/response?
