Not only, but also it seems a good puzzle, similar to Tower of Hanoi
similar to the Tower of Babel ?:

Just adding my 2 cents into this. I found the same thing out a few years ago with IE6. One day I just simply got the same message from Google and Yahoo. Figured that was the day they stopped supporting IE6. On other web pages I would get a message like "Upgrade your browser to a newer version" which always made me laugh since on 98/ME IE6 is as far as you can go. So I thought that was stupid of them since they could have also queried the registry to find out the version of the operating system and realize that I could not update to a newer version and offer some kind of different message. I have a triple boot system with 98/ME/XP and just this past spring the same thing started happening with IE8 on XP. So IE8 is now in the same boat as IE6. Fortunately I have FireFox in all 3 systems and can still access any website that way from any of my OS's. However Firefox does not have the seamless interaction between Windows Media Player or Outlook Express that Internet Explorer does. Also Firefox does not offer a "Save Target As" option when you right click on something you want to download like IE does. Really like that option in IE. It's a trade-off. And thanks for the additional info on tweaks. I'll try it and see.
I usually use Firefox and Chrome on XP. Safer browsers than IE. I use IE 6.0 strictly for situations where I need legacy compatibility.

There is an alternative way to browse that some may be unaware of. Paste this into your browser:
and then type the domain name after the equal sign. For instance:
I have found this useful for the really "overweight" websites since I only have dial-up. This method will only give you the text...no pictures or videos etc.
