Ascribed to Malice

The headline reads "Microsoft's New Home Page Shuns Firefox" stating that if you go to http://preview.microsoft.com using IE, it works just fine, but if you go there using firefox you (intentionally?) get a "page not found" error.  I don't know, the page seems to be working fine for me in FireFox.  Maybe, just maybe, it was a screw up (like the redirect URL was messed up), and not an intentional plot to screw FireFox.  But then why bother ascribing to human error anything that could be labeled malice.

Malice sells more ad impressions (i.e., agreed). And, while there's a huge gap between malice and apathy, MS still needs to be slapped for making so many of their pages non FF friendly.
