Senate Finance Committee Website Optimized for Netscape
This site is optimized for Netscape Navigator 4.x or Internet Explorer 4.x, with an 800×600 screen resolution.
As Matt observes, “Netscape 4 was, of course, a fine product in its day. But its day was 1997-98.” Then again, he notes that the Senate as a whole seems to be outmoded, “so arguably the Finance Committee is ahead of the curve.”
Readers helpfully point out that Committee websites are unlikely to receive high funding priorities and that being operational in ancient browsers likely ensures maximum usability. And, indeed, the site renders fine in my Firefox 3.6 browser and 1280×1024 dual monitor display. But still.
Oh, and the helpful links take readers to a 404 page and IE 8.
