Hi :)
I kinda agree but even though IE has recently become a minority share of the web-browser market it 
is still used by quite a lot of people.  Usually those people are clueless about the alternatives 
and/or seem to think they are using a superior product because they haven't really tried anything 
else.  There's a LOT of them and we don't want to cut them out of our potential market.  Telling 
them they have to change web-browser just to use LO just gives them an extra reason not to bother 
trying LO.  It just makes yet another artificial barrier and increases the FUD.  

Something that does seem to surprise people and encourage them to install LO is that they can have 
both LO and MSO on their system.  A dismaying number of people wont dare try LO because they think 
they have to get rid of their MSO.  Similarly with web-browsers of course but that is not our 

I'm credited with having written the 2nd paragraph below but it really wasn't me
1.  Most of the web developers i know are ladies
2.  If i had thought of it i would have written directly to the Websites List to ask them if they 
could do it.  
probably the only reason it might not have been done already is that they are a small team and are 
still working on it.  However, i doubt that IE 9 needs a different certificate from IE 8 or that 
certificates made for IE 8 are incompatible with IE 9.  It's always possible, of course, especially 
if it could make things difficult for LO without affecting too many other people.  

Most of the people on tis list probably are already using Firefox, Chrome, the Mac one, Opera or 
some other non-MS web-browser.  We need to catch more people that haven't tried the others yet and 
maybe be their gateway into OpenSource.

Note that IE is made by a 3rd party competitor that has good reason
to want to see LibreOffice (and all other OpenSource products) fail.
The more they can do to discredit LibreOffice the more likely they
are to sell more of their own product and make more money.  So, if IE
doesn't behave we might not be able to  do anything about it.

certificate for * for 

Or you could just install FireFox and be done with the problems ..
