'Supporting Internet Explorer is hell': Web developers identify top needs – new survey


It's a great tool for running legacy webapps where the developer retired 10 years ago and your outsourced techies quote 100 days work to change in any way. The dark secret of enterprise isn't that the backend mainframe is running 40 year old cobol, it's that you're required to support 5 year old IE 9 appplications...

Also if you have the misfortune of supporting office automation written for IE.... Edge, Chrome, all the "real" browsers work in completely different ways. I'm not even sure if VBA *can* automate Edge.
