I've done a lot of contacting sites, it has worked a few times, like
for when Ars Technica was identifying 'webkit + linux' as android and
giving Epiphany a mobile page, but for things like Google I have had a
huge time getting them to fix stuff (even having friends working there,
and knowing a lot of people in the Chrome team), and they keep
releasing broken stuff, so I don't think that scales.
