Using Internet Explorer 6 a "Workplace Cruelty"?
      #33748 - 07/23/09 12:34 PM

The labor leader told a news agency "So to force them to use the most decrepit browser in the world is a rare form of workplace cruelty that should be stopped." He also said "Why civil servants should not be given the choice to use Firefox or Chrome or Safari is beyond me. UK web workers deserve better."
