IE9 is mandatory?

is there anyway to skip the IE9 mandatroy business?

I don’t like IE9 and don’t want to use it.

please tell me there is a Chrome of Mozilla option for installation.

otherwise this tool is un-usable.

No, IE9 is required because the dashboard uses some components of IE to render the UI. You do not have to use IE but it must be installed and present on the machine in order to use the dashboard.
