Kelkoo’s missing scripts require a mind-reading browser

Do you want to book your vacation at Kelkoo in Germany?

Too bad that the only destinations they will let you go to are named "—————–" because a script that was supposed to fill in the city names is 404:

Needless to mention that IE gets a different source code with an IFRAME that links to a file which actually exists.

Kelkoo is just trying to push alternative browser vendors to explore artificial intelligence for their products. Now, here's a solution: 💡 Next time we see an empty drop-down and a 404 script we should just use Google's context-aware ad system to find a suitable list of items. Contextually randomized booking? That would be another feature first seen in Opera..
