MSN up to their old browser targeting crap?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I think I remember something about MSN writing their pages so that non IE browsers (I think Opera was the one I read about) would make the pages look all gobbledy gook. Well, as if that wasn't enough I just had an interesting thing happen to me. I attempted to check my hotmail account using Safari and I got this message.

Just for fun I tried to get in using Netscape. No problem. Just to make sure I tried Safari again and got the same message. Makes me think that maybe Safari has been purposefully targeted. Check it out and see if it happens to you.

I got my hotmail account when I was in 8th grade, long before they were assimilated. I'd dump the damn thing but so many people know where to find me there. I've had the thing for about 7 years now.
