5)from - http://gnowgi.org/2009/10/02/usvisab/ - US Visa application
not possible if you use free software!
October 2, 2009
    I wanted to go to the international conference on semantic web to
be held in October 2009 near Washington.  So I try to apply for US
visa.  There seems to be no way for a person to apply for US visa
without using MS Internet Explorer.  Firefox/Mozilla based browsers
don’t work.  In protest to this unfair practice, I have written the
following open letter to the Ambassador of United States in India.

6)   http://fyjc.org.in is website for Mumbai Region
11th Standard Online Admissions - It is not avaiable in Firefox. It
say "Currently we are supporting Microsoft Internet explorer v6 or
newer only"
