Read closer.. Google didn't block anyone.. They simply put up a banner along to top saying some features MAY not work as intended..

It's still fully functional.. And anyone in any modern browser can use it just fine..

Eventually, when Google adds new features, the unsupported browsers get stuck with the outdated feature set because of the (forgotten, neglected) browser sniffing in place. Google does feature block.

`onbeforeunload` is a non-standard, Microsoft event. It is only guaranteed to work in Windows Internet Explorer. There is no guarantee that it will work in other browsers.

It's not non-standard anymore.

Thanks. Those docs in my post were outdated. Opera will eventually implement `onbeforeunload` now that it is in the standard.
