Evil Hotmail

is why hotmail sucks so badly. Any web site that would have a page called “ThirdParyCookieCheck.srf” is just going to be evil (especially since third-party cookies are technically impossible, illegal or immoral, I can’t remember which). But what’s really great about this is that .srf is a Sun Microsystems raster graphics file extension. Yeah, so hotmail, one of Microsoft’s oldest products, runs its evil marketing cookie handler on Sun, a company it’s basically been at war with since both companies existed. And that technology somehow managed to hang a hotmail web page and crash Microsoft’s browser in the process. Awesome.
