No ajax on IE mac?

Hi,

My webapp ajax routines (scriptaculous among them) work perfectly on
different browsers on both mac and PC (tested on 7 browsers in total).
the mac IE version (IE5.2), however, doesn’t responde to any ajax
request whatsoever!

Did I not get the memo?..

If IE on mac doesn’t know how to work with Ajax, how to I disable access
for users with that browser?

Thanks a lot!

IE on Mac is a long-dead browser. Discontinued since 2003. Deader than a
doornail. My suggestion would be to sniff the browser and throw up a
“use something else” page.

I wouldn’t be surprised one bit if it didn’t have XMLHttpRequest.
