Using Firefox when it’s being blocked

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks, as you know I’ve been recently testing out the new version of Firefox and it’s been great! But what do you do when people decided to block which version of a browser you are using in an environment and force you to use Internet Explorer?

You look for a Firefox plugin of course! :) There is a plugin from Firefox called the User Agent Switcher. This plugin allows you to make Firefox impersonate a different web browser such as IE 6, 7 or 8. Some of the other things you can do is impersonate search robots which is great for search engine optimization.

I have to say Firefox has been a heck of a lot more stable than it ever has been for me. It is now my default browser of choice and with all these extra add-ons it is making my browsing life extremely easy!
