Browser detection still sucky

Well, just after being surprised by some Browser detection preventing me using a travel insurance site with Firefox, I stumbled across another example in the same week. I’ve just upgraded to Firefox 3; I know I’m a bit slow off the mark here, but unlike many who work in IT, I don’t usually classify as an early adopter. Anyway it seems pretty good, and faster than Firefox 2.

Went to access the Traveline Scotland Journey Planner, which is an indispensable but imperfect tool for finding bus and train times. Greeted with this strange warning:

I could just downgrade to Firefox 1.5 (superseded by 1.6 in February 2004) or Internet Explorer 6 (superseded by IE 7 in October 2006). Or maybe Traveline Scotland could just review their browser support.
