Today I read at, that the German post finally releases its StampIt web version. StampIt is a software for electronic prepayment of letters and packages. The software itself runs only on Windows, there was no way to run it with emulators like Wine or Crossover Office on Linux. That's why I was pretty happy about that news about the web version because I thought I can finally use it with my browser – but no, when I try to login, the system tells me:

Die von Ihnen verwendete Kombination aus Browser und Betriebssystem wird von STAMPIT WEB nicht unterstützt.
Derzeit unterstützte Browser und Betriebssysteme sind:

* – Win 98SEMS Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1
* – Win MEMS Internet Explorer 5.5 SP1
* – Win MEMS Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1
* – Win 2000MS Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2
* – Win 2000MS Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1
* – Win XPMS Internet Explorer 6.0 SP2

Zur Verbesserung des Service befinden sich weitere Browser in der Implementierung.
Insbesondere Firefox, Mozilla und Netscape stehen Ihnen bald zur Verfügung.

OK, they want to support Firefox, Mozilla and Netscape – eventually – but maybe the system then tells me that they support these browsers on Windows only again? I cannot believe it …
