Dear devs,

It's NEVER ok to lock people out of a webapp because their User-Agent doesn't match your predefined list. 😡

Especially webapps they need to manage their healthcare.

It is ubiquitous enough to be mostly decentralized, has backward-compatible standards that are mostly agreed-upon, and is mostly resilient to attack..."
