Well, as the intranet is only accessible from inside the company
network, and no one outside the company has access to it (hell, even
most of our in-house contractors don't!), I don't really think they care
very much about anything other than windows/IE compatibility.

Let me make something clear.  I agree with you about what "should" be
done.  But I'm a relatively new employee still figuring out the
corporate climate, and I'm too busy learning the new domain to spend a
lot of time making unwanted suggestions about already-purchased,
installed, and configured software, no matter how heinous.

PLEASE don't CC me.  Please.  Pretty please with sugar on top.
Whatever it takes, just don't CC me!  I'm already subscribed!!
