I say that points to some pretty shoddy scripting, and little-to-no cross-browser testing. So shame on Phil Ryu (or whoever it is that actually builds the web sites).
Well, we are dealing with Flash here…so if in doubt, blame Adobe.
In fact, I would suspect that using Flash would have alleviated all of these crazy incompatibilities. Flash tends to work pretty consistently across all browsers and platforms. When Flash doesn't work (and it's quite often that it doesn't work — I hope I'm not sounding like a Flash fanboy), it's usually going to not work pretty consistently across all browsers and platforms.
I dunno man, web browsers are a big mess. It's not as simple as "if firefox do this, if safari do this". Detecting the browser is easy, implementing the same effect in both is not. You bring up that people with identical browsers are getting different results, that just illuminates how tricky this stuff is to test. I can't say I know a lot about web development but I know enough that it's pretty difficult. "Phil Ryu (or whoever it is that actually builds the web sites)" has done a pretty awesome job and creating an immersive, fun environment using only browsers and their small amount of shared standards.
Now, I like free, non-upgradeable shareware as much as the next guy, don't get me wrong. I'm mostly concerned about this as a sign of things to come.
OK, at this point I need to apologize for my long-winded nature. I haven't caught up with the brevity that the Internet, Twitter, and texting had foisted upon us.
