Even with all this being true, though, I’m
almost positive my old workplace was still using iE
exclusively until the new Edge came out. Hopefully they’ve
switched over now. But I guess some of their web
applications were coded specifically for iE, so an option of
using something else wasn’t even on the table. I stopped
working there in 2017, but there was absolutely no sign of a
change on the horizon at that time (and I was in the IT
department). Experts were already telling everyone not to
use IE then, and every serious web developer spurned it, yet
I heard many accounts of other workplaces (especially in the
public sector, I think) where no other browsers were
allowed/in use. Crazy.

As always you are not getting that we
often don't have a choice.
And, as always, you feel free to mischaracterize what I'm
saying with your own spin. Have at it.
Anyone with 2 firing neurons discourages the use of IE unless
you absolutely, positively cannot use another option, and
never where security is a concern.
It's got nothing to do with sighted help being needed. And
the fact that IE use, and heavy use of IE, still comes up all
the time on blind-related technology groups means that word
needs to get out, in no uncertain terms, that this is a very,
very bad idea. And it's a very, very bad idea if you're
sighted or blind. There are many things that are completely
unconnected to visual status, and it's long past time you try
to make the majority of what I say have a tie to something it
