    What about *unsupported* browsers? You could leap into the dark and support your own browser installation of Firefox. I mean, OK...supporting your own browser installation is a huge deal...what if you needed to export bookmarks or something? But, it's doable.

    I've been running Chrome, FF and Edge now for a year...all on my own. Could go wrong at any minute, but, I like to put myself out there.

    @karma Bing...yeah...I've not really embraced that yet. Kindle is working hard to push me down that path, though.

    My Kindle. Search uses Bing and you can't update it.

    @platypus return it, do you have the receipt?

    Of course, but it's a bargain at $50. I bought another. I just have to remember always to search from Silk.

    @scornish Been there. For some reason, enterprises think of IE as an epitome of stability.

    It gets better: the whole company uses windows 7 sp1, however our software dev department uses Ubuntu VM’s exclusively since the sdk switched to Linux back in 2010. Really good stuff here.
