Using IE at work can be a nasty shock if you use Firefox at home


As a freelance journalist, I mostly work at home, on a computer set up just the way I like it. And I use Firefox, the browser that's eaten into Internet Explorer's market share.

So it's only when I work in an office that I am exposed to the full horror of Internet Explorer. Businesses, particularly newspaper offices, have yet to join the Firefox revolution. Corporate IT installations are like ocean liners: vast, not updated often enough, slow to respond and bloody difficult to turn around. So not only do most companies still use IE, they tend to have old versions, on ancient operating systems. Guardian Unlimited Technology | Technology | Technobile
