Browse Like It's 1995

July 25, 2003

In a trend that oddly mirrors the recent flap over buy.com's new music service, my sharebuilder account was inaccessible to me this afternoon.

It seems that the powers that be at Sharebuilder think I should be using a browser newer than Microsoft or Netscape 4.0. Hmm, I thought Safari, Camino, and Mozilla Firebird were all newer than 4.0.

Lucky for me, Safari can mask itself as other user agents. A quick trip to the Debug menu and I was able to login again.
