        A lot of companies run in compatibility mode for ie7. That's actually how I found it. My windows machine has ie9 but the company has compatibility mode turned on by default.

        Unfortunately there are a lot of IE7's still out there. In addition to direct requirements from the mailing list, it may help to use analytics to measure browser types.

        Discussion: which are the (minimum) browser versions we want to fully support (it doesn't mean the portal is broken in previous versions but it may look different)
