    Well, some people are just inconsiderate to those who don't use the mainstream!! Just because everybody's using it, doesn't make it good!

    And that user agent switcher works for me!

    I tried it with Opera on FreeBSD (Identified as MSIE 6 on Windows NT) and it worked fine. I switched it to identify as Opera on FreeBSD and it blocked it. Since it worked fine, there obviously aren't any real compatibility issues, and therefore no reason whatsoever for that notice to be there. The website is running on Win2k, maybe Microsoft gave them a discount for pimping.
    In any case though I'd tell them to shove it and apply somewhere else. If they're too stupid to write real HTML, they're not worth wasting your time on.

    i had this issue when appying for TSA or something similar. and i also wrote into many places about the support issues online. sucks that you have to use Windows to do some things online that are usually serious. luckily theres this user agent option which i have tested and am pretty impressed. good find to whoever it was who posted it.
