i thought all this stuff had finished, but apparently not, i landed on a hilarious website today (Opera 11.52) and got this message:

ps. i do know how to use opera and send an IE user agent instead - however that's not the point.

this site lost me as a visitor (if it cares)

Got an RFP not too long ago that listed all the browsers they required support for and it was the same thing.

IE 5,6
Netscape 4

It didn't mention Chrome or Firefox. I was surprised they didn't fax it to us.

Their fax software probably doesn't work anymore on their wireless connection :)
