Not the least bit surprising. I have a Netgear FS728TS where the web
interface only worked in IE6 for the longest time, until a firmware
updated added Firefox support.

That was for home use though - there is a lot of decent Cisco gear on
eBay if that's your thing. Personally I've found HP's lower-end ProCurve
switches very braindead in terms of features and administration.
