You've been lucky haha. We have to test the software we write at work against various internet browsers and I am fighting more and more with IE with every release. It's the least secure major browser out there too, as Microsoft supports proprietary technologies that compromise the integrity of the computer it runs on and they keep doing it because... well when the Microsoft collective puts its mind to something it's hard to get them to change it lol
Really for the last 10 years or so as David mentioned though, the IE user base has been falling. It's strongest base is in corporate use on cheap Dell workstations and such in companies that run all Microsoft software, but even they are moving onto Firefox and Chrome because of the security problems. Even Safari (Mac computers and IOS devices) has a higher user base than the last version of IE.
