Browser Detection

Postby XmDXtReMeK » Sun Apr 12, 2009 7:31 pm

Hi,
I wanted to make a small request to fix this bug. Forums are currently detecting this browser as safari, can you fix it to detect it as Chrome at least?

No, because some Forums block Chrome.
Please mail to the forum that they should fix their detection.

Thank you for the clarification. I use Ad Muncher's user agent changer to make it to firefox, xD. It would be a really neat feature if you guys implement a dynamic user agent switcher. What you think? something doable? Will you consider it?

To add to what SRWare said, the site in question should not be be browser sniffing as this is not the correct way to do site design. The site should be using object detection of the DOM.
