Yet again another bully tactic by Microsoft. Try to guess where this time? Yup again with the browser. Check this out. I switched over to Opera because I was very impressed with how well it was running . While I was going thru and customizing things I hit an option where you can change how the browser identifies itself to the server. You can choose if you want it to say Opera, Mozilla, or if you want it to mask itself as Internet Explorer 6. In order to seperate my clicks on various websites I work on I told the browser to identify itself as the Opera browser. After I logged into hotmail.com to send a file I had just scanned to a co-worker a window pops up saying that the software I am using is going to keep hotmail from working "properly" and there was a button to download internet explorer or one that says to continue to hotmail anyway. Well it turns out I cannot attach files because hotmail isnt working "properly". So I went back into the prefrences and changed the option to identifiy the browser as IE 6. *POOF* Magically hotmail works with the same software that it warned kept hotmail from working "properly". I was then able to attach a document and email it. Pathetic. Very very pathetic. Microsoft must know Opera is the better product if it has to do things like that.
