It was news for me too. I always thought that Mozilla(/firefox)
followed the RFCs to the letter. But this was the first one that
I encountered that they deliberatly chose *not* to implement.
Because if they did, it would break a lot of sites (apparently)
and people start to blame Mozilla.

I wonder what Opera users do with this. Because Opera
will break those sites...

Ehm, isn't it just a change in the User-Agent string?
That wouldn't make any difference...
