Why, oh why, must web companies force us into their latest and greatest crap? This morning I fire up my computer, and as usual iceweasel opens automatically to my home page of my.yahoo.com. What do I get?
Hmm... your browser is not officially supported.By the way, I am still using the old yahoo mail, because the new one is such a blasted resource hog/outlook clone. If I wanted outlook, I'd use outlook, OK? I don't want a big email client in my dang browser.
Of course, if you're a regular reader of this blog (hah, poor you) then you know that list of "supported browsers" is likely to throw me into conniptions, anyway; I'm sure you've noticed that there are no browsers supported in Linux. "Firefox 1.5 or higher (Windows and Mac)"
Anyway, just want to vent some irritation. I like the last caveat, too:
You can proceed to the My Yahoo! Beta. However, please note that we cannot provide technical support for your browser.Yeah, like yahoo is so outstanding with their technical support already -- not that I blame them, it's free for crying out loud, why should people expect tech support? I know, I know -- because people are idiots, that's why.
