Shifting from IE to Chrome in the enterprise

If our experience at Ministry Health Care is an indicator, enterprises may be transitioning from Internet Explorer (IE) to Google Chrome as the browser of the future.

The problem for IE is not about being an inferior browser (although I am sure that will be argued in the comments). But, enterprises like ours have a lot of early generation web apps that were built to run specifically on older versions of IE. This has prevented us from upgrading IE to more recent versions.

At the same time we are implementing a lot of new web apps (like Workday) that demand a modern browser. Since we can’t upgrade IE without breaking the legacy web apps, we are introducing a second browser: Chrome.

Over time we will have fewer and fewer apps running on IE and more apps running on Chrome.

One thought on “Shifting from IE to Chrome in the enterprise

  1. I switched to Chrome earlier this year and love it! Granted I don’t have the legacy and corporate concerns – with deployment and support and all that – but Chrome is just soooo much better and more stable. and I love it’s integration with other Google products.
