There are many causes. I develop "for" IE because it is the default browser for HomeSite. It is just a matter of convenience. But then again, I check my work on other browsers and os'es.
I think there is also the problem that those going to school for comp sci don't necessarily get told to check their pages in other browsers and platforms. I had two web courses and neither one suggested that I should check my pages for compatibility. How sad.
Finally, I think there is laziness in/ignorance of how to get multiple browsers on one computer. I have NN versions 4.79 through the latest on my machine and I have multiple machines on which to test in a lab. I don't think every web person necessarily knows how to or cares to make sure they have access to all browsers.
