Since the spring of 2003 (and perhaps earlier), IE has been losing
its share of the browser market.  Today, 35%-40% of those accessing
the Web use a browser that is NOT IE.  

A business whose Web site is "best viewed with Internet Explorer" is
not only ignoring a substantial part of its potential customer base.
 It has also tied its future to a fading star.
