Whiich version of IE? I know some php sessions stuff doesn't work
properly in IE7 - I choose to believe that the browser is at fault,
not the site.

I think you just answered your own question there, Mr. Turpin. Really,
it comes down to usage... if the site works in the most commonly used
browsers, and uses widely accepted implementations of web standards,
then it's fine. If the site only works in 50% of the browsers, then I
think there's a problem with the site.

Try reversing the question - if the site ONLY works in internet
explorer - is it a good site or a bad site?

Dont forget that you also need to consider the likes of safari /
chrome / opera, too :p
