They seem to do some browser sniffing and display the following:
"The virt-x website is not supported on:
PC or Apple Macintosh with Netscape 6.0."

If you disable JavaScript, the site works quite well. The JavaApplets doen't
seem to work though.

Screenshot of virt-x.com without JavaScript

I don't see why they deny Mozilla/Netscape6.0, the page doesn't look bad, is
navigateable and even the JavaApplets work with Sun's JRE1.4. The only problem
I see, is that you don't get a vertical scroll-bar.

Also, found  bad coding techniques in the feedback form, such as 
if (isNav) { window.document.layers["errornn"].visibility = "hide";
} else { document.all.errorie.style.visibility = "hidden"; }
