Browser updates?(20 posts)
I think I had that before when I couldn't view one of your posts on IE8.
Never reinstalled it after XP reinstall.
Edit: Got it installed again. Not too comfortable with it but, no choice I guess if IE8 is not going to work.
I'm not upgrading from IE9 to IE10 until M$ works out the worst of the initial bugs (and I don't like FF, don't trust Google, and PM is too new for me to jump onto it) so you may lose me for a while if the new forum doesn't play well with IE9.
That, or you've been drinking what I've been drinking.
I tried the Discourse trial site on the stock Android browser - works fine despite not being listed as supported.
Found these on a search. Top three are from HTG site. Haven't tried any of them myself though.
Chrome is easily changed (although it only spoofs IE up to IE9 - no setting for IE10) via developer tools. In IE8 and back you had to edit the registry. IE9 forward, FF & PM - I have no clue since I've never used them. There's also an extension for Chrome called "User-Agent Switcher for Chrome", but I haven't tried it. There's probably a FF equivalent of it as well. In Android, both the stock browser and Opera Mini (the two I use) allow setting user agent via advanced settings.
Found the following which I thought interesting in the Discourse FAQ.
Can I be the same user on all Discourse forums?
We do offer a preliminary but functional global nickname registration. If you want to be consistently known as @kittenbunny99 across all Discourse instances, you can. You'll also get a user page here that optionally lists all your forum memberships.
For now, sign up on meta and that will globally reserve your nickname for later use.
@Xhi, Interesting, don't know how I missed that on the first read through. Anyway IE8 on all my machines, page for meta would not load. Tried Pale Moon and worked just fine.
Edit: Did you sign up?
