  1. With MS IE gradually losing market share, can website designers afford to continue to code just for IE, and ignore 1 out of 20 viewers? Their existing code will continue to lose more and more prospective viewers unless they redesign them with more standardized coding. MS may seem like a “sure bet” for today (well, 95%), but it’s a very long horse race that has just begun. I’m not so sure I’d be so short-sighted and fail to code for the future. But, I guess that’s what keeps web developers employed… they can create their own product’s obsolescence.
