There's no excuse for it.

I tried to visit Simon & Schuster's newly redesigned Canadian site tonight and got this:

You need to upgrade your web browser.

Most of our audience uses one of the browsers listed below. We want to help you update your browser so that you have a better experience on and other Web sites.

If I tell Opera to pretend that it's Firefox, I can get into the site and everything seems to work. So thanks for the offer to "help" me but I like my browser just fine.

It has been a LONG time (we're talking years) since I've seen that sort of message on a website and even more since the identity switch thing has worked. I hope they didn't pay a lot for the redesign.
