    Recently while visiting a friends myspace I was shocked to find out that we were looking at two complete different images. What she saw in Internet Explorer was far different that what I was seeing on Safari.

    Not surprising. Its flash.

    If Safari = pr0n.
    If anything else = something else.

    This has been done for years with many sites (bank or financial sites specifically). Netscape/Mozilla handles pages differently than IE does. They have a "start page" that detects the browser, and redirects it to a specially coded site for the specific browser. So the site looks the same on both browsers, yet is completely different code.

    Its not that difficult to imagine using that same code (in flash in this instance) to show two entirely different sites. Maybe as a joke, or maybe for other non-joking reasons. (revenge)

    Not just IE

    Its not just IE. Morzilla, Firefox and others display the same image that IE does. Why is Safari the only one who displays a different image? Is this a cruel joke to all PC users?
