Facebook doesn't support assistive browsers

Facebook, as I said in an earlier post, is almost inaccessible for people who use assistive technologies. Here's a screenshot taken while trying to connect to Facebook using Lynx, the textual browser:

Lynx and Facebook

As you can see, Lynx is not supported, so trying to log in results in a frustrating experience of redirections. I hope that Facebook will start to take into account this kind of users and their needs, because it's too bad that a web application like Facebook doesn't support assistive technologies.
