No Firefox at work

Looks like we won’t be using Firefox at work, despite how it now does seamless authentication and everything. You see, one of our business critical applications has a web client, which all the staff will be using. And (go on! go on! guess!)…that client only works in Internet Explorer. It totally, totally does not work in Firefox. It uses IE-specific HTML. IE-specific JavaScript. There’s not a chance it’ll work in Firefox. Great.
What’s the fucking point in writing a web client if it only works in one browser?
This is what vendor lock-in means. All hail the mighty Microsoft.
The stupid thermal coffee mug the company has sent me does not make up for this.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
