I just downloaded Opera 5 to see how my sites are displayed with it...they are all fine except for one small thing: the browser detects it as IE so it loads the same pages as in IE but I see that my animated logo is running at about 60 fps as in Netscape! What is the code to redirect Opera or to detect it?
Thanks in advance.
Opera's profile shows up as the following (when running on a Win 98 machine), "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows 98) Opera 5.0 [en]"
Unfortunately, it is exactly the same as IE apart from the Opera 5.0 [en] on the end. If you can find a way to get your script to ignore the MSIE and only recognise the Opera 5.0 [en] on the end then it should work. I don't know how to do this myself . . . at the moment, but, one day . . . :)
Hope ths helps a bit at least.
Chip is correct. However, Netscape have come up with a browser sniffer that accurately detects Opera and the other browsers too :
