Firefox 3 dead? StackOverflow ends support completely

StackOverflow.com now blocks anyone running Firefox 3.x (probably not deliberate – just someone wrote some bad code and didn’t test it?). But it’s interesting that sites that decide to go anti-HTML and pro-AJAX/JS can so easily break their whole site, just from some errant JS code.

(it appears to be some new pieces of crappy javascript that cause the AJAX requests to fail on Firefox 3 – and ALL THE BUTTONS AND FORMS ON THE SITE ARE DISABLED. Since you can’t click on anything any more, that makes the site unusable)

    End-of-Life for Firefox 3.6.x was on April 24. Looking back at the version history, I’m surprised that 3.x.x went into alpha back in 2006, but wasn’t released until 2008.
