    Anyone still using IE?

    If so, this might be something you should read (hint: disable Flash)- Homeland Security: Don't use IE due to bug

    Chrome most of the time. But a couple of online businesses don't work in Chrome so I.E. Used firefox some, years ago some of the colleges had netscape(?).

    If we had stopped browsing the internet every time IE had a security bug the internet would have died years ago.

    Still very old IE 6 at home because I can only use IE for work email and my computer is so old, it won't run new browsers. I use Firefox 3.6 for everything else except for paying 2 bills that won't display on such an old Firefox. I open new Firefox and wait forever just to pay those 2 bills.

    I have it on my machine, mostly to test if my pages work ok there, but on rare occasion, I run into someone's website that only works on IE (I think that the Arkansas Health care signup was the last time)

    I happened to bump into a finance webapp I was testing today to make sure the web proxies were working that caught that I was using FF on Linux and spat out a "IE is the supported browser" message. I chuckled politely. Our timecard webapp does that too, but works flawlessly with FF and OpenJDK in spite of the message.
