You have a point here.   (Though you're off the mark on Macs.  You must be 
part of the Apple cult. ;-) )  This is actually a big problem on the web.  
Many web pages are created using the latest technology and all the bells and 
whistles don't work on the older browsers many people are still using.  
Sometimes this makes the page hard to use on an older browser, driving people 
away.  Web programmers should design their pages so they look good using a 
browser that is a generation or two old.  Phil Ramone produced his pop hits 
so they would sound good on the average car radio, not on hi fidelity stereo, 
because that is how most people would hear his songs.  The same concept works 
for the web.
