    Hi,

    I happened to notice that IE8/Chrome/Chromium derivatives doesn't load this website on XP, though none of them are as secure as using something like Pale Moon or K-Meleon, it would be nice to have either a HTTP fallback for this site, or usage of something other than an ECC certificate which XP's crypt32.dll doesn't recognise.

    Or just redirect all devices not being able to read ECC certificates using a htaccess rule to the K-Meleon Goanna test build page would be an easier option (though UA sniffing via htaccess to disable the HTTPS redirect AND the browser itself would have to be implemented, possibly slowing server times).

    I just registered here and it'd be nice to see because this is an XP forum after all... also, don't shut the forum down if XP was to become properly obsolete, maybe repurpose the forums into something like MSFN's stuff?

    Thanks ^^

    I completely agree with you, Momijiharp. This site works perfectly on Opera 12.18 (in fact, I'm typing this message from Opera right now;I do use Mypal for other sites that Opera is starting to have problems with nowadays though). I would love to see an HTTP version of this site, ideally one that would be designed to work well on older browsers (meaning that it could be accessed via something like Firefox 2, or Opera 9, or even the old OffByOne browser).

    In general, this site should work well with any Presto-based or Gecko/Goanna-based browser released in the last five years at least, perhaps even further back. I'm amazed that Opera 12.18 works as well as it does with this site; I thought it was going to have a hard time with the JavaScript elements, but it's actually very fast and functional on a browser that these days is not exceptionally good for JS-heavy websites).
