The reverse is also true in large companies where people are stuck at IE6
simply because some legacy apps such as SAP will not work with other
browsers and later versions of IE. Never mind that the bulk of the company
doesn't need or use SAP (or other dinosaurs). SOE lockdown policies mean we
cannot install other browsers and if we can, we cannot add the add-ons.
While IE9 is about to be launched, some lucky people at my workplace are
part of a "trial" for IE8.
