Instead of actively blocking certain browsers, they should just support a specific browser/browser engine (and version), say as much on their help/about page, and let the rest of the users be subjected to the whims of the HTML/CSS gods.

It is what Microsoft decided to put there...
It is the same for almost all the modern browsers...
Instead of identifying the browser it list a kind-of compatibility list...
The reason for that is that they really do not want you to identify the browser (as a developer)...

At least, one time in the past, MS supported different methods of doing things than other browsers (such as AJAX) and used a different rendering engine with different compatibilities with respect to HTML/CSS
Then, in one of the last incarnation of IE (where it had that name) they changed it so it couldn't be identified as IE because they were making the changes to fall in line (sort of) with other browsers. If they were identified as IE it would then mess things up.
These so called "environmentally-friendly" wind turbines are all well and good, but surely statistically 50% of the time the wind is blowing the other way? This will make them spin in the opposite direction, sucking power from the grid instead.
And, in lots of areas there is one predominant wind direction. In my place, there is far more wind from the east than from the west.
But one thing I a curious about: If the wind is coming from the north, then N-NW, NW, W-NW, W... and so on, the wind direction goes the entire circle around, and the turbine follows, all the way around. You get the power from the generator down to the ground through quite heavy cables. Will the twist up, just like a rope of hemp? Or is there a mechanism in the wind mill saying "Enough is enough! I must turn of for a little while so I can rotate back to Mark Zero, to unwind the power cord"? Or do they have sliding contacts? The big mills can deliver quite a few megawatts; that puts some requirements to a sliding contact!
Or is the generator steady, the blades rotating around the vertical generator shaft? To me it doesn't look like that from most photos; it looks as if the generator is located behind the blades, with a direct horizontal shaft from the blades to the generator.
I am asking out of pure curiosity and lack of knowledge - windmills are certainly far out of my field of profession!
