Hey! Without IE all browser memes would be pointless. Respect that.
And also welcome.
Welcome to dealing with people in sales.
There used to be a time where I did actually use IE as my default browser at work when doing frontend web dev stuff as the idea was if I was using the most difficult browser by default, I would catch abnormalities quicker. Wasn't such a bad idea to be fair. Although now I do just use Chrome by default.
Internet Explorer has it's uses. Where I live, one of the major ISPs is still using Silverlight for their on demand streaming platform. Edge blocks Silverlight, Chrome blocks Silverlight, Firefox does allow it if you install the plug-in, but Internet Explorer runs it out of the box!
It's basically as discontinued Microsoft product party 🎉
Sales people have their uses.
But defending IE is never among them.
What you had was an incompetent salesman.
(no disrespect to salesmen, my wife is in sales)
