    Default Grocery coupons: the next exciting Linux frontier

    Go to http://www.coupons.com and here is what you'll get:

    We're Sorry

    The internet browser you are using is not supported.
    Go to http://www.smartsource.com and you run into a similar situation. It does appear to look like someone over there is wanting to make it work, but they aren't there yet. I attempted to quote what it says on screen, but it doesn't flow right in the cut and paste.(it looks fine on smartsource) It does recognize linux, recognizes JRE 1.7, but says it's too low and I need a higher version.

    Go to http://coupons.walmart.com and the result is the same.

    Your computer operating system or internet browser is not supported.

    We support the following configurations, please try printing again in a supported platform.
    So how about it? Where do you go for coupons?

    they all seem to work without problems using firefox + user agent switcher (set to win + ie)

    edit:
    Ah you need to install a "coupon printer" with a provided executable (.exe). I wouldn't even do this on windows.

    Yeah, see what I mean. I know the website works, but it's the function of the website that's the problem.

    FWIW, I don't do much coupon clipping. I'm having this problem with a family member.

    I wouldn't install the coupon printer either(on any windows machine that I used to have) but some people really really want their coupons - to which there's absolutely nothing wrong with.

    It's too bad that this is so platform-centric, instead of being more browser-dependent.
