Version 3.1 and later include a "Develop menu" in the Safari menu -> Preferences -> Advanced that allows Safari to spoof a website into thinking it is a different web browser. Prior versions (3.0.4 and earlier), read about enabling the Debug menu. If you want to explore the command line via Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal, you can enable the Debug menu that the previously available software Safari Enhancer does offer you a User Agent menuitem to cloak itself as a different web browser (I'm not sure which versions this works on since I haven't tested it on all):

Additional Safari addons which may improve browser compatibility can be found on Pimp My Safari. Nagarabrowser gives Safari a kiosk mode. With the 10.3.9 update it has been reported that several third party addons such as Saft and Acid Search will need updates. The March 2005 security update fixes Java issues on Safari, and if you applied the 10.3.9 delta update, applying the 10.3.9 combined update will often fix issues. See my Upgrade FAQ for more on how to apply updates without running into issues such as these.

|Microsoft Internet Explorer is no longer available for download from Microsoft. A WINE version for Intel Macs offers some I.E. 7 compatibility.||The Mac OS X version 5.2.3 is available from Majorgeeks. There are several stores which carry old Apple operating system disks which also included Internet Explorer for Mac OS X. If installing older operating system disks, be sure to observe the System Specific installation notes. The Mac OS X version of Internet Explorer was last preloaded on Mac OS X 10.3's Install Disk 2 as version 5.2.3. The included Internet Explorer for Mac OS 9 on restore disks and Mac OS 9 installer disks is version 5.0. Remember if installing Mac OS X, only an Archive and Install and Upgrade and Install will let you preserve applications from previous versions of Mac OS X on the hard disk. Otherwise, you'll need to either use the Install Additional Applications from the restore disks, or Charlessoft's Pacifist to extract the files from the installer packages to reretrieve Internet Explorer (if it wasn't backed up elsewhere). OldApps.com has the only known copies of version 5.1.7 for Mac OS 9.||Microsoft product feedback page|
