+ - Microsoft India serves Safari broken pages

Upon changing the user-agent string to MSIE/Windows, the same page loaded with no errors. Microsoft have pulled this trick in the past during the launch of Windows XP (and again, and again). Why do they keep discriminating against browsers that are perfectly capable of handling their content?"

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
