were they IE?  if so, i can understand that, given the fact that the 
internet controls are different from OS version to version, and the 
tight integration IE has with the OS...

however, out of all the sites i've tested (which is at least 300 by 
now), which involves testing from OS version to version, i've never 
experienced that with a non-IE browser... i have in IE, but that's 
because it was a different version of IE (different point release, 
based on the OS again and the browser control)...

so yeah, you're definitely right with windows and IE, since they are
nearly the same thing, but i've never seen it on other browsers...
not that i think you're wrong... btw, do you have any examples?

OS same, but different browser?  i've seen that, but it's not been 
the OS for me, it's been point releases and plug-ins and other
