web standards whine

Firefox 1.x is now just over three years old, so of course it basically doesn't work on a ton of sites anymore (for example, I can't confirm friend requests on facebook with it).

Because god forbid people should support 3-year old software.[*]

([*] hint as to why this is bad: suppose EVERY piece of software you used you had to upgrade every two years, and they moved all the menus and changed the keyboard shortcuts and etc. Would this really be acceptable? If not, why is the web different?)
