I was wondering if anyone had some good reasons for why not to change browsers from IE
ie6: 7% market share
ie7: 7% market share
ie8: 16% market share
There's a lot of business that simply refuse to move away from IE to another browser of any sort, regardless of all the reasons that I myself coming from a geek-based background see as obvious no-brainers, (security, compliance, privacy, extensibility, open-source, ... etc ...), but I haven't seen a lot of reasons aside from April fools jokes for why to keep the thing.
Is there some sort of business intelligence I'm missing here for this decision? I'm not intended this as a troll post, but a legitimate attempt to understand the other side of things. I understand that browsers such as chrome do not support protocols such as NTLM authentication, and there are FF extensions for it, but the whole protocol on it's own is reasonably insecure as it is... Nor can I believe this to be a relevant reason for things being this way in 2010.
I acknowledge this question is on the border of subjective conversation and what super user is for, but I felt this the best of the overflows to ask on, and hope for some good input.
