Root6545341dLike ten years ago, traffic stopped suddenly on the freeway (75mph to 0) and I couldn't stop in time, so I rear ended someone. I opted to take a course to remove the point from my license. Looking back I totally didn't need to, but whatever.
The course's website did a whitelisted browser check and one of two immediate redirects depending on results. The problem was nobody had updated the whitelist in like another ten years, meaning it was seriously checking for IE 5, Netscape Navigator, and the like. Chrome and Firefox weren't even on the list despite being out for years.
So just navigating to the site required a very carefully-timed [esc] to stop the loading, and inspecting the js and markup to see where I was actually supposed to go.
I'd say I was surprised nobody noticed this, but government everything tends to be stuck in the distant past so they could probably use it just fine. 🙄
