Yes, I Will Conceede That In Fact You Are An Idiot

Be forewarned: This post falls under the category of rants about technology and the people who don’t understand them, even though they should.

I was browsing Bob Brinker’s Money Talk on Demand site and came accross a piece of information that causes some concern:

ATTENTION FIREFOX USERS:

We have not tested or configured this service to work with this browser. If you are using Firefox as your browser and are experiencing problems, please close all windows and open Internet Explorer.

This, by itself, would cause me to wonder what Mr. Brinker is paying his web site developers for. What’s even more startling is this note:

If you do not have another browser available on your computer, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator can be downloaded by going to the links provided below.

Netscape Navigator? Are you seriously supporting a browser only has (wait for it) 0.15% of the browser market and comes in at #5; over Firefox, which has 11.79% market share, comes in at the #2 most popular browser, and is the only browser to actually give Internet Explorer a run for its money in the last half-decade?

Brinker, of all people, should realize the power of 11.79%.
