Not rubbish at all. They owe you nothing.

Not everyone is you.

If they allowed incompatible browsers that caused havoc then before you
know it the great unwashed would be demanding more and better support or
complaining about lack of functionality. Doing what they do they make it
very clear from day one.

Dont like it? The APIs are open. Write your own interfaces to their
authentication and graph API and target the parts that wont result in
your accuont being banned for chucking access tokens around and breaking
their security model.

Simple solution : use an uptodate capable browser if you want to use
these technologies. I really dont see why people whine.
