Enterprises Slow to Dump IE

OwlWhacker writes "The calls to dump Internet Explorer may be getting louder, but they are falling largely on deaf ears among enterprise users.

IT managers and users say that while the rash of security flaws associated with IE has drawn new attention to its vulnerabilities and has led some individuals to switch browsers, enterprises are reluctant to change browsers because of their reliance on IE-specific intranet applications and Web sites.

[This is why it's not a good idea to create a dependency on solutions that are not based on open-standards. Makes you wonder whether Microsoft's offering of 'Integrated Computing' will be a pro, or a con? -- OwlWhacker]"
