I have been doing hard core development for about 7 years now and have tried to support IE but it's much more work than I'm willing to put in. I built an application specific to a company and only worked with Firefox. Later, I found that it also worked with Chrome without any problems. I am constantly running into problems with IE that don't make sense.
In order to make IE work with the web site for something as simple as a style, it has to be hacked. I am not a CSS hacker by any stretch of the imagination. I believe we all should ban together and force IE to be compliant instead of doing what ever they want and making our lives difficult. They are the only problem out there. All others are pretty much standards compliant.
I used a framework on a website called Apycom menus. All other browsers would allow me to select the second and successive menus. IE7 would not. I had to add a style change to make the freakin menu work. This is the jQuery framework. So, even this cross platform framework had problems with IE.
I figure that I would spend a 10:1 ratio of time to hack IE to get it to work. That's why I said the heck with it.
