I’ve had some interesting discussions about browsers and minimum requirements. Most professionals still seem to like to limit their efforts to one browser, Internet Explorer. And preferably 5.5 and up. Betting on one browser that happens to be the dominant browser today causes a significant risk if that would change. Because of security issues, U.S. government’s Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), issued a warning strongly suggesting that users of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer should switch to another Web browser. That resulted in some very bad press recently, and a (slight) reduction in market share. This could lead to a cascading effect, resulting regular users changing their browser. And website owners who are only focused on Internet Explorer having to do major re-designs. I for one, don’t have budget for this.
