Enter the site Actual Results: Browser type/version is detected and the page disappears and an errorr message appears Expected Results: Page should let us in without forging the browsertype/version totally (it doesn't even work with opera identified as MSIE). Someone probably should send them the information letter. email@example.com in probably the one to contact.
I got into the site using forged useragent using konqueror (it has this functionality easily accessible and included), but couldn't find anythink that wasn't working. So it might be just the stupid webmaster that underestimate the other browsers, or has just tested one and think that all doesn't work.
Have contact mail : firstname.lastname@example.org

I tried the site in todays Firebird build, using an extension that lets me forge my useragent. It worked just fine in Gecko (it was dead slow, because of DHTML I believe. But it worked).
It might be some parts of it that only works in MSIE, but I has not seen any (I got in using konquerors user agent forging). The problem is that the webmaster isn't responding.
They have updated the whole website now, and validates quite good :-) And does does not check for MSIE.
