Jeff Nolan would like to switch to Firefox, but says it’s just too much of a hassle:
“my friend Pravin is always trying to get me to use Firefox, which I did for a while (love the tabbed browsing interface). But it’s just too much of a PITA to figure out how to make all my regular sites (like SAP’s internal network) work on it. So I’m back on IE, despite the security risks.”
I guess that’s a problem many of us have. There’s still too many web designers out there who design for IE, then shrug when being told that their site won’t work on other browsers. They *know* that people most likely have IE installed on their machines, even if they use a different browser by default.
Users, on the other site, *will* use IE if they want access to a particular site. SAP is a good example, as all of their sites (service.sap.com, sdn.sap.com etc.) are next to inaccessible with any other browser.
Here’s a message to SAP: if you’re serious about security, I hope you have re-writing your IE pages on the to do list!
