Seems fair enough to me. They are only talking about about blocking old and insecure browsers like IE4. It is easy enough to update them.

You missed the fact that the Apple Safari browser will also be blocked

No mention of Firefox then,,,
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

The latest version of Internet Explorer support EV SSL certificates, while Firefox 2 supports it with an add-on but Apple's Safari browser for Mac and PCs does not.
