  1. I just called Old Navy and they were very apologetic and pointed me to Firefox. At least they did not try to tell me to use Windows. The woman with whom I spoke said that they were aware of the problem and that they were working on a fix to be implemented soon.

  2. firefox loads all of ’em ok. this is not the first time i have seen safari handle things badly, which is why ff is now my default browser.

    and as for the connection between apple and gap, didn’t gap just run a promotion “try on a pair of jeans and get free music from itunes” ?

    MW:years as in “the browser debate is set to run for…”
