Common sense

Or it should be common sense: Don't build web apps that only work in IE.

Don't do it deliberately, and don't do it by accident, either. Test with multiple browsers. I use Firefox (which is also my main day-to-day browser) and IE. I'd test with Safari on a Mac, too, if I could talk my management into buying me one, and with a Linux browser or two if I could talk them into allowing me to run a Debian box on the network.

Oh, and don't write web apps that don't work in IE, either. Like it or not, it's still 90% odd of the market, and will remain the number one for the foreseeable future.
