Well, on this list, I do think the vast majority are cross-browser and
standards proponents, yes.

I actually work on a large site with a lot of active development and it, too
is Win IE only. I write JS code that doesn't work on any other browser. We
have yet to see a client use any other browser. Our clients are exec types,
so it's not surprising. We also feel here that the time investment for
cross-browser is senseless. Our site depends very heavily on JS, but I feel
that's not a problem because it's only accessible to our limited client base
and they all are not opposed to allowing JS.


PS: Maybe we should take this to the Israeli thelist? ;)
