I’m running on my Fedora 8 box Mozilla Firefox 2.0. I see a link for Battlestar Galactica, Season 3, on CNN’s page near the bottom. What page do I get back when I load it? This one. EW doesn’t describe my feelings. Ewww does.
I’ve been in this business a long time, and I’ve been browsing the Internet and tinkering with computers a lot longer. So do tell, how does Firefox on Linux differ that much to a web server from Firefox on Windows or Macintosh? The best you’ve got is the user-agent string, I’d think. One of the biggest goals of Firefox is that web pages look the same on different platforms. More to the point, how do you suggest I upgrade my browser to a totally different operating system?
I’ve seen some stupid web-discrimination in the past (and I still do from time to time), but this is pretty near the top. There’s no excuse for that.
