In the Opera browser...

Hmm, this article looks interesting. *kilk*

Huh? Encyclopedia articles are fine, why not news?
Oh, wait...

Settings changed. Opera will now pretend it is MSIE 5.0.
(now, if the site asks, it will think it is dealing with Internet Explorer instead of Opera.)

"Insect Cuisine: Good and good for you?"

That's right, encarta.msn.com works fine when I make no changes other than changing what my browser claims it is. It actively locks Opera from working when it calls itself itself.

As a fellow non-standard-browser user (Mozilla here), I can safely say that that's very wrong. (LiveJournal has mysterious slowdown problems in Mozilla actually... hmm.)

It's why I like the "Identify As..." function of Opera. I can call myself Opera, Mozilla, Netscape, or IE.

It shouldn't make a difference. I support the Any Browser campaign. But oh well.
