Key words “old devices” and “shoddily hacked”. The first lets me think
that new features could never solve old problems – after all, if the UAs
would be updated, one could just fix the bugs that existed. The second
lets me think that no one – including site authors – would implement
device detection and appropriate discrimination correctly.
