time warner cable browser sniffer fail

http://www.timewarnercable.com/

I go to the site and get this (using Opera 10.54)

This site was designed to work best with Firefox 2, Internet Explorer 7, or Safari 3 or higher. Click on one to download it for free.

This is still going on Today 6/27/2010 yes still in 2010

Firefox 2 is dead no longer supported for at least a years now, and Safari 3 is also dead for well over a year

  1. I like this one:Re:As a member of the IT department… (Score:4, Informative)by Aladrin (926209)on Sunday June 27, @06:34PM (#32711664) So you don’t support IE7 and IE8 either, then? Because speaking as a developer at a different company, we have to specifically test each of those separately anyhow. And Firefox, of course. And Safari.So what you’re really saying is that it’s too hard to support 3 versions of IE and Firefox and Safari AND Chrome and Opera as well.Since Chrome is Webkit, just like Safari, it seems to me you should probably go ahead and support that one. And if your app works on Firefox and Safari without any hacks, it’ll run on Opera as well.And like it or not, Chrome is taking market share from IE and Firefox. We are rapidly approaching a market that doesn’t have 1 dominant browser, and you’ll have to support them anyhow. Giving up now is letting go of things you’ll need right before they become critical.I feel we need a car analogy, so it’s like going from a single car on the highways to having many companies making many cars, but paving your roads to only work for that single car.http://it.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=1700050&cid=32711664

  2. dirk Are they on XP SP2 still because that is losing support as SP3 is still for a few yearsAre they stuck with IE 6 because of compatibility issues?

  3. I wonder if they know that they could lose a lot of money since a hacker could have an easy time getting into the computers with all those security holes, then then have to pay all the fines for the security breech

  4. neither … nor … they just don’t care (imho) … seriously they don’t have professional administrators that’s the only reason …they are simply not aware of security reasons … if your administrator only does what he has to do and not thinking a little step further you will be stuck like this … they’re stuck in didgital lethargy … ’cause everything seems to work :awww:

  9. Originally posted by Chas4:Do they know that IE 6 was to blame for the hack on Google and 34 other companies?… be sure they know … so at the moment I’m running the firefox 4.0 beta (portable) … probably the only one of 4.500 users :p

  10. :up: of course … but now just testing ff …. the opera is way faster … but also got the portable chrome … really fast but not very comfortable … no link … that’s the best in opera got everything with me opera mini 5 the 10.6 3451 build … and it works even with the proxy :up:
