    Hi Fred-
    I mostly agree with your statements about wasting time troubleshooting browsers. I too run dual browsers. But keep in mind, that some sites still use controls requiring a specific browser - and more often than not, this is IE. In the case of IE 11 issues, there is one simple thing I will often do - open Developer Mode (either via <F12> or the Tools menu). I will shift the browser and the document mode to emulate an earlier version of IE .... if I am in a rush, I drop to version 8 (XP), and if I am in less of a rush, I will try versions 10 and 9.

    It never ceases to amaze me how often IE problems disappear. It typically means the site owner has not updated the site's code and the site assumes when it sees a Microsoft browser, that obsolete structures are still fully supported. For safety's sake, I will emulate an older version of IE only if I am confident the site is legit.
