eBay idiocy

eBay seem to have decided they no longer want to do business with the majority of Mac OS X users who are still using their computer's default web browser. When I go to pay for an item I've bought, it now says, "Safari 3.0 is not a supported browser within the checkout flow. Please use another browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox." Changing Safari's user agent string to IE 7 works around the bug but most ordinary users won't know how to do that (hint: use Tinkertool to enable the Safari Debug menu, then look under Develop->User Agent).
