That's weird, I tried in Firefox, Chrome and Opera and both site/cache produced the same thing.

Bizarre. Seems to load (but horribly) in Links2.

Wow, how pathetic. It actually loaded in IE, but not Firefox.

Horrible site design tbh. :|

'nuff said.

I was hoping to read the info there.
So is it a IE only type of site?
I could get the cache, then load 'text only version' but cant see any further pages.

Wow, Opera can open this site full of errors.
at least I can read it. I have found some other sites like this before.

Wow. They did an awesome job on their coding.

But hey, I don't think I could do any better. :P

w3m for the win! :)


But I would love to see a version of Links using the w3m rendering engine, with support for images. :P

even though the page has so many errors, it seems to work decently.
the thing is why not Firefox let users view the page anyway? like Opera will, Even though malformed, I think the more noble better thing is to let the viewer get the content and information, even if the delivery is flawed.
