If a person uss that browesrer to browse the web then thy either have a slow connection and do not want to wait 2 hours to get a real browser or they are afraid of change.

They saying they dont want to upgrade so its our duty to make a web site accessible for all category also people with disabilities.A web site that works with speech browsers. That is why gov is insiting that federal and gov sites should
Educate and upgrade!
Most young programmers have banned that from the list of browsers they are testing for
