The Hong Kong Jockey Club (香港賽馬會) is one of the shittest websites, their online 投注站 only support IE.

Great news is that finally changed it. Although they are still sticking to Microsoft (Silverlight) now, we do have an alternative Moonlight for Firefox users. When IE and Safari get into the hkjc website, they can automatically detect and download the corresponding plug-in. Firefox failed to do so, because Silverlight is not open-source. Surprisingly, this time Microsoft is kind enough to create a similar open source project Moonlight. They provide a firefox plug-in, letting non-MS people to bet finally.
