Yahoo! Music still stuck in 1999
The site uses buggy browser sniffing and tells visitors to “upgrade” to older browsers in order to view videos on the site. I tried viewing a video in Safari on my Mac, and all I got was this nice message:
We’re sorry, but you must use Netscape 4.7x to use this application on a Macintosh. Download NOW.
Wow, thanks for helping me keep my browsers up-to-date, but I think I’ll pass on that one. Come on, Yahoo! Music, it’s almost 2006 and you’re asking people to downgrade to a browser that was released in 1999. I think most will go elsewhere instead.
