Well, my standard browser identification is of course Konqueror. However, 
if I find a site which really behaves mad and only gives an error 
message, I change the setting for this site alone. BTW: I think with 
Konqueror itself you can only use existing IE versions - I use WWWOFFLE 
for it. Looking at the relevant config file, it seems to be >1 year ago 
that I used that trick. Maybe today most webmasters have found out that 
there are other browsers on the market. Furthermore, Dotans approach of 
complaining to the webmasters is probably the best way to eliminate those 
discriminating sites.
