Next time I’m getting hardware, there’s a significant chance that it’ll be Apple hardware. So, I do check out OS X software.
What I won’t be getting when I get Apple hardware is “Delicious Library”:http://www.delicious-monster.com/error.php (found via Simon Willison’s Blogmarks) because I have made a “choice of browser”:http://www.opera.com/ that’s different from theirs.
And no, I’m not switching to any of the lesser capable browsers listed on your error page to investigate your product. What I _am_ doing, however, is checking, out of professional curiosity, why your site doesn’t work in Opera.
I found two possible explanations:
# You are clueless about web authoring. In which case I wouldn’t trust your software not to eat my kid, burn down the house or do anything particularily nasty to the contents of my hard drive. _Accessible web sites is not rocket science!_
# You are actively discriminating my browser. In which case I’m not buying from you. I don’t like having software choices made for me.
I noticed the big, flashy “Blog us” button in the web site footer. _You bet!_
*Update:* Delicious Library have, since posting this, started letting my browser in – something I’m so pleased with, I’m going to give them a big “Thumbs up!” instead.
