We have mentioned this before: browser
sniffing is stupid if you only end up getting it wrong. If you need more proof, try visiting Microsoft’s Office section using Firebird 0.6 and you will see this gem:
"Warning: Viewing this page with an unsupported Web browser. This Web site works best with Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01 or later or Netscape Navigator 6.0 or later. Click here for more information on supported browsers."
Ahem, to borrow the quiz theme from Dan Cederholm, I ask you which of the following is the MOST standards compliant?
- IE 5.01
- Netscape 6
- Firebird 0.6
The answer is c, folks! Will somebody pleeeease tell Microsoft’s Office team about this.
