This knife cuts both ways
I often see it go a bit the other way - sites coded for Chrome or Firefox, with less compatibility for IE - perhaps because well meaning young coders "know" that they (Chrome and Firefox) are 100 times better than IE, and even sometimes have more than a dislike for IE, bordering on a hatred of anything Microsoft.

Most likely, a huge percentage of users world wide are on IE, on my websites, visitors using IE range from 53 to almost 70 per cent. 

If you are one of those coders mentioned above, as the article suggests, don't let your beliefs hurt your customers - just take care of them, and certainly do not punish them because of a belief that they are using the wrong browser!
