IE 5.5 is a good guess as this is the default on Windows98 and W2K, so it's
for sure supported by most sites. But if we would reduce the options to "Internet Explorer",
then we would need the latest version to not get "update your browser" from
bleeding edge sites. But then again we fall into the trap of sites that were
written before IE 6 and were never updated since then (been there, done that).

It's not that black & white as it may appear, but I agree that having the common
options in high level and a detailed selection somewhere lower.
