Ah, fair enough :)
I move in different circles, and some people I know are more techie than others. For instance, most of the people I know in SJA will still use IE, although they probably don't read my blog.
Regarding websites, I can think of a few examples off the top of my head. I'd prefer it if they were compatible with other browsers, but for now it's a choice between using IE and not using the website at all.
* Outlook Web Access.
This has two options: the "light" version and the full version. To quote the blurb:
"The Light client provides fewer features and is sometimes faster. Use the Light client if you are on a slow connection or using a computer with unusually strict browser security settings. If you are using a browser other than Internet Explorer 6.0 or later, you can only use the Light client."
For instance, if you use the Light version, one restriction is that you can't open extra mailboxes.
This is a company that offers payroll/HR solutions. They only support Internet Explorer - if I try to connect to their
using Firefox then it says "Incompatible Browser". So, if your company uses ADP, and you want to book annual leave or view your payslips, you have to use IE.
This only supports IE6 and IE7 (or at least the version I'm using does). No IE8, which means you're out of luck if you use Windows 7, and no other browsers.
