Red Hat should acknowledge the existance of browsers other than Firefox for management tool interfaces. The support line of "we only support Firefox" is getting a little long in the tooth.
For a start it would be nice to see browsers like Chrome as optional in the repositories (yes I know there are big issues at play here, but this is a wish list right?). Could a strategic shift even be considered here to replace Firefox as the default browser with Chrome?
For products with WebUI's such as Satellite, a more inclusive methodology needs to be looked at. Many shops will run management tools through an ops team who more than likely have locked down desktops with IE installed. No option for Firefox. I have seen shops using Mac OS X to browse management interfaces. As for Chrome - it's user base is on the up whilst Firefox is declining.
