I will try to contact the right person there. Problem: When you go to this site using Gecko-based browsers, a popup with the following message appears: We have detected that you are using a web browser other than Internet Explorer. The Safeway.com site is optimized for use with the Internet Explorer web browser. Other browsers, such as Netscape, are not supported. If you do not have Internet Explorer, you may download it here
They said they'll look at fixing this in a few months.

The page seems to work now, maybe the bug can be closed now. WinNT 4.0 SP6a Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020510
When you say "page" -- were you able to conclude transactions? That's the important thing. I will look into their progress on making the site fully compatible.

It appears that if you don't use the 'Favorites' functionality of Safeway.com, you can successfully purchase through them. However, the 'Favorites' function is a major part of the site, allowing you to look at previous purchases to decide what to order. I've followed up with Safeway.com with an email, and received an email stating they're only designed for IE, but they'll be looking at other browsers in the future.
Site seems fine in Netscape 7. I get no warnings, was able to register. It appears the Favorites function is available but I don't want to shop to test it. I am marking this fixed. Please reopen it if you disagree.
