Microsoft against VBScript plugin sniffers!

Imagine a browser that doesn't support VBScript. Think of a site using VBScript to detect Flash. Think of users being annoyed when they are told their browser "does not have Flash" even though it does. Sounds familiar?

Well, this time we're not talking Opera! We're dealing with PIE – Pocket IE on Pocket PC… They've done some testing over there and realised that VBScript Flash detection is quite common. Hence, Microsoft now tells you to avoid using VBScript plugin detection as it hurts interoperability!!

LOL. Priceless. And thanks for the URL, malware.
