However, it won't let Mozilla suite users see the Buyers Guide. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. go to http://www.aimglobal.org/ 2. click "Buyers Guide" at the left side Actual Results: Your browser Mozilla 0 is not currently supported by this application. To access this application you must use Internet Explorer 4 or Netscape 4.78 or Opera 6.01 or greater. Expected Results: Grant users of all Gecko based browsers full access, as if they were using an equivalent Netscape(TM) branded browser. Don't let the name "AIM" throw you off; it stands for "Automatic Identification and Mobility" and has nothing to do with any Internet messaging network.
In 1.7rcx on OS/2 I get " Your browser Mozilla 7 is not currently supported by this application."

geez, I am tired of such lame windows asp coders. contacted their info email with the following: Dear Sir: Your site blocks users of Mozilla from accessing your Buyers Guide. To reproduce you can follow these steps: 1. download and install Mozilla from <http://www.mozilla.org/>. 2. go to your homepage <http://www.aimglobal.org/>. 3. click on buyers guide where you will be directed to <http://www.aimglobal.org/members/include/browser_not_supported.asp> where it states: Browser Not Supported Your browser Mozilla 7 is not currently supported by this application. To access this application you must use Internet Explorer 4 or Netscape 4.78 or Opera 6.01 or greater. Considering that I am using Mozilla 1.7, it is clear your server side user agent detection scripts are completely broken. Note that I can access your site in Mozilla if I change my user agent string to match Netscape 7.01 and have no difficulties. This is obviously a problem in your browser detection in your server side ASP scripts. I recommend <http://devedge.netscape.com/viewsource/2002/gecko-compatibility/> as reading for your web developers. If your web developers are not aware that Mozilla is the basis for Netscape 6, Netscape 7, AOL for Mac OS X, Firefox, Galeon, Kmeleon, Epiphany or that the combined market share of the Mozilla family of browsers exceeds that of Opera you might want to bring this to their attention. While it is true that your customers on Windows have the choice of using Interent Explorer, your customers on Linux and Mac OS X do not have the same choice available. In fact, your customers also have the choice of giving their business to someone else.
