Think Cisco, for one.

I personally think that _EVERYBODY_ with a CCO contract should
open up a TAC case complaining that X-application (website,
RME, VMS, etc..) doesn't work with a W3C-Standards Compliant
browser, nor with latest-bug-fixed JREs.

I've already got mine open, but of course "Use I.E. or some
old version of Netscape Navigator, and an old JRE!" is the
typical response.   They need a lot more prodding to keep their
security platform up-to-date with security standards.

I have been griping to my Cisco sales team for years (being an Ex-Cisco
SE myself) about the dismal support for any browser but IE. I could dump
IE entirely were it not for my Call Manager.

At least it seems that some of the products that they acquired that were
initially cross-platform usually remain fairly browser-agnostic.

It's funny you mentioned that - just came back from Networkers 2004 in
New Orleans, and this was one of the biggest complaints and hottest
topics there - and you know what the answer of Cisco
"geeks"/developers was? They recognized their web interface sucks, and
they are looking (?!?) into better java support, but it is a problem
of speed that they're dealing with, and the only solution for this -
so far - is (presumably) what they already offer us ...
