FAFSA sIte won't accept Safari 6.0.
Just as the title says. I get "An incompatible browser has been detected" and it lists Safari 4.x and 5.x as the only acceptable versions. What the heck can I do to get around this? has anyone else had this problem, or one similar?

Home - FAFSA on the Web-Federal Student Aid is the official one. When I go to the site and hit "Start Here", I get the error message. I don't know how to take a screen shot on my Mac, else I'd show you.

here. By the way, to take a screenshot with your Mac, press command+shift+3.

UPDATE: When clicking on the Start Here button, I get the error you referenced, but like Keith has pointed out, it works via the iPad and if it works via iPad that means it should work via the iPhone so I accessed the website via my iphone 4S and then clicked on Start Here and sure enough, I did not get a browser error.

I just did my FAFSA a couple of weeks ago...i used Safari, and had no problems.
This is relevant to your problem, and was found (when i encountered the same problem) with a 2 second google search...
