I think you might have intended to say SSL instead of referring to SSH  
(Secure Shell)?

	Here's a good one of interest at http://www.fasfa.ed.gov/  the  
message below I receive when attempting to log in. The clever  
Windows .NET developers suggest these browsers but the website will  
always disallow you to continue. I must report my browser as IE 8 in  
order to log in. It matters not if I'm using OS X or Linux with  
Safari, Firefox variants, Epiphany, Camino, or Galeon. I do use  
Firefox with an extension that falsely reports my browser version with  
" The browsers listed below have been certified for use with FAFSA on  
the Web. If you choose to use a browser other than the ones listed  
here, the site's pages may not display properly, and you may encounter  
problems while entering your application that Customer Service may not  
be able to resolve.
