Yep, just use the "Mobile and Table" link. Had to do that because my chromebook is not supported either. It's silly that they are still filtering based on user agent operating system rather than user agent browser and capabilities.

I concur. In theory it should be really, really simple: stick to standards, keep it simple, and it ought to work on any platform as long as certain minimums like Java-/ECMA-Script are met. Heck, there are IRC clients written in JavaScript, there's no reason they should engage in this shameful practice of saying Windows or Mac only. What's worse, they present a form for chatting, and it isn't until you finish fiddling with it and submit it that they tell you "we don't (want to) support your platform; use Windows or Mac"...like they couldn't avoid wasting my time by telling me this up front, BEFORE I start filling out the form!!

English is a difficult enough language to interpret correctly when its rules are followed, let alone when a writer chooses not to follow those rules.

Jeopardy! replies and randomcaps REALLY suck!
