By other browsers, I mean, Opera 9+, Safari and IE too.

Now I know that Safari / IE support sounds ridiculous, but consider a
user running these applications and browsing our website? To give you an
instance, I sometimes access my mails over the iPhone, which means I am
using a Apple Mail + Safari combination. I would personally appreciate
it if the site /behaved/ the same. Now the definition of behavior can be
left to the site designers - some may choose to include L&Fs, others may
choose to restrict it to only functionality.

The point is that there are possibilities of indirect accesses of our site.

Regarding the non-gecko Fedora-packaged HTML engines, I believe we
should be filling bug reports against them for not supporting the
standards :-)
