This page is out of date.

For the record, I've tested:

  Safari (on OS X)

All of these browsers work.

I think that IE also works, but I don't have a way to test that. If someone
does, feel free :)

Admittedly, what's missing on the GPLv3 site is a short 'about' page for the
comments system that states which browsers work and which do not. That page
should be linked to from the 'e-mail' page. That link should replace that
cryptic 'browser compatibility is currently limited' line. 

I'll follow up on that to make it happen.
