IE Only Website: U.S. Copyright Office?

From Copyright Office: Is only MS IE acceptable to you?:

In a followup to its July 22, 2005, Notice of Proprosed Rulemaking, the Copyright Office is now seeking “information as to whether persons filing the electronic-only preregistration form prescribed by the Copyright Office will experience difficulties if it is necessary to use Microsoft’s Internet Explorer web browser in order to preregister a work.”

It’s been a few years since “Best Viewed With Internet Explorer” was something people proudly put on their sites. The idea that only IE is capable of viewing a webpage is absurd, but some people insist. But requiring me to use IE to preregister a copyright? Why? Didn’t Homeland Security say that IE is a problem?

The article provides contact information so that people can submit their opinions on this matter. More info: http://www.copyright.gov/fedreg/2005/70fr44878.html
