In the ole good early days of the web, when there were not yet so many *stupid* web site surfers, it wasn't the _browser_ that was at fault, but the _site_, which was at fault when something was wrong. Now it's the other way around: stupid users were made to think that it's the browser that is at fault when a site doesn't work — probably by ignorant web developers.
So, here I'm just reiterating: that back then, _a site didn't work with browser_, now _the browser doesn't work with the site_. I think there should be some research into how web users began thinking in this flawed a way. Why it is the fault of ignorant web developers — well, it all was probably so in the beginning, too, but I still wonder how the mindset changed.
