Just curious ... what "business tools" do you have that are "IE oriented"?
I assume you mostly mean msOffice? AFAICT, Microsoft programs are pretty
good these days about honoring the designation of Firefox as the
"default" browser. As well, almost all sites I've run into lately
display as well (or better) in Firefox. There are two extensions
(add-ons is the term used now) available, one opens a page inside of
Firefox but using IE engine, another opens the current page in IE.
Recently released Firefox 3 (I use the portable version even though I
have it on my hard-disk) is very stable and faster than IE. Judicious
addition of add-ons can make it a joy to use. Obviously if you only want
to use a browser to assist in your "real" job this may not worth the
(IMHO) minor pain to get up and running and comfortable with Firefox ;-)

I didn't mention, but CoScriptor does work on both IE and Firefox. To
download it you have to create an IBM-id but after that it should be
pretty smooth (though you would need to invest a a couple of hours
learning how to do the equivalent of a "hello world" program before
tackling your real task).
