In the aftermath of MSN's browser-blocking misadventure, I stumbled 
across a really useful Mozilla
add-on - David Illsley's useragent toolbar xpi - linked from :


When it's installed, you can change the useragent string that Mozilla 
reports by either entering your
own or selecting from a dropdown list (which includes some common 
configurations like MSIE5 on
win98 and mac, NS 4.7 on win, mac, and unix, and more).  Pretty neat and 
useful for getting around
strong-arm browser-blocking in a pinch.
