Description:When a user tries to use the UI from a browser that's not currently supported (e.g. not Firefox), the system should let the user know that.  Currently, the UI will let you log in, but will just hang or behave strangely when you try to do anything.  (e.g on Safari on a Mac)

Implementation options:

- Check the browser for compatibility on first access and bounce them to a page with pointers to download the right browser

- Show a dialog box at login for incompatible browsers, but let the user proceed anyway (at their own peril).  For example:

"Warning:  This user interface is only supported on Firefox, and your browser appears incompatible.  You may proceed, but some UI functions may not work properly."

Andy, I tried to implement the way you said
which is to "allow only compatible browsers and to show an alert for all non compatible browsers". But when trying to do that, i realized that blocking the 3 non compatible browsers (1 condition) is easier than allowing _only_ the compatible browsers (more than 8 conditions).
