iOS4 and Android also support SNI. Even elinks supports it these days.

iOS and Android are both pretty new platforms

They're also widely-used; many features don't work with ancient browsers anyway.

Are you really arguing that supporting a handful of users with ancient browsers is worth sacrificing everyone's privacy?

according to Wikipedia, no IE on WinXP has SNI support. Thats unfortunately a large chunk of the general, internet browsing public.

Well, that could be (another) incentive to move on to something better.

And Linux runs ususally very well on these ancient machines ;)
