We're not talking about a "best viewed in", though. We're just saying that,
in the T&C or whatever, Wordpress has only been tested with [LONG LIST OF
BROWSERS] and we cannot guarantee or support behaviour (successful or
otherwise) in other browsers.

The list of things Wordpress supports is quite comprehensive; it's not like
saying "best viewed in Firefox" which might scare people off.

To be honest, "best view in FOO" is all a bit 1996 anyway.
