No matter how niche the alternatives are, web developers are only making more work for themselves down the line by using browser specific code.
Proponents of Gecko and Webkit were screaming for years that web developers should be following standards so that sites render correctly in their browsers, however now that their browser has a majority it's suddenly fine for others to not be supported.

Even the MSN extreme mobile site is has less functionality on my Lumia than on the iPhone. On the iPhone you can scroll stories, videos, etc horizontally by swiping. On the Lumia buttons appear that you have to tap and the whole thing doesn't display as fluidly.

It's like blaming them because their site doesn't work with Opera. They'll just give you this "Really?" look.
Why would you waste developer time supporting Trident when 95% of the world is using WebKit? Think of it like a developer, before you blame them.
Everyone here uses WP7 and likes their phone (I'd hope), but use a bit of logic before flinging poo at developers and major corporations who have much more important things to worry about than tweaking their sites to support niche platforms.BlackberryOS -> iOS -> Maemo -> WP7
I don't have a device religion.

Good news, everyone! Microsoft has updated IE9 to not be rubbish anymore and mobile
Twitter site displays fine now.
</sarcasm>Furthermore, I think apps must be able to override the search button with contextual search.
