    Been down that road years ago. with our clients.

    Reason‘s simple: they usually have bought (very) expensive software/customizations/intranet apps/plug-ins that cannot run in different browsers, making old IEs a necessity for them. And updates/upgrades of that software are too expensive (or not possible at all)

    Also, their IT department has better control via policy settings within their win ecosystem (+ installing other software is usually forbidden for individuals, while making other browsers available would mean a global rollout)

    It's not just an issue with Germany. The UK also likes doing stupid shit like that too.

    Both of you have valid points i guess and if you See it this way it makes a little bit more sense. But in most cases i experienced there is no valid reason for using Internet Explorer other than the argument That the companys already using it for over multiple years now. Along with a Windows Server 2003 Installation πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ‘Œ

    Once asked my employer why they still use IE and if they would consider installing a different browser.. Answer: we opted to use the Microsoft-standards throughout our company and can't just change our policies for one person...
    Uhm, okay... I don't know how to deal with that much stupidity

    @rEaL-jAsE (I wrote conservatives, because every country has a conservative party. For US, I'd say "Republicans")
