Why should we still consider Internet Explorer?

All the web developers should be knowing the Odd behavior of IE (Internet Explorer) compared to other browsers.

Mostly it won’t follow any standards. Both javascript and HTML will behave differently in IE than than they behave in other browsers.

I feel that time needed to put special conditions for making the webpage work with IE will be more than the actual time taken to develop the website.

If we search the internet for any IE specific issue, we can understand most of the people are highly irritated with behavior of IE.

I think most of the users are now started using Firefox instead of IE. I can clearly understand this from my google analytics results. And also our blog poll also tells the samething.

Lot of add-ons are available for Mozilla firefox to improve user experience.

I am just curious to know why we should still give importance for IE.
i-e why should we write special conditions to make our webpage work in IE instead of asking our users to use Firefox?

    First, for the record, I use Chrome when I have the choice. Now, why should you consider IE? Well, IE still has roughly a 66% market share, so your assertion that “most of the users are now started using Firefox instead of IE” is factually, as well as grammatically, incorrect. So, unless you want to alienate two out of every three people who come to your site, you should make sure that your app works well in IE. And unless you want to alienate 99% of the people who read your blog, you should learn grammar.
