Chrome ignored by big business

Few evaluate it
Few IT teams are bothering to test Google's Web browser, Chrome.
Silicon.com's latest exclusive CIO Jury poll showed that business users were spurning the browser as if it were a rabid dog. About 10 out of 12 users say they are not even testing the software.
Most of them say that IT infrastructures are being set up to run with Internet Explorer as the default browser. Google unveiled Chrome at the start of September.
Nic Evans, European IT Director at Key Equipment Finance, was quoted as saying too many business applications are only certified for Internet Explorer to consider any alternatives so soon.
Public sector users are avoiding testing because of security concerns and had have to take the lead from security watchdogs.
