At least an ARM based tablet with Android has browsers where you can
specify the User Agent (e.g. Android, Desktop, iPhone, iPad, Custom).
"Desktop" being the most useful but Android (mobile) is sometimes useful
too (e.g. when tethered). There isn't necessarily one answer to 'which
user agent?' on some devices. 'Flexibility' is the key word.
'Configurable' is another. ;-)
Well, Risc OS does have other browsers which will get to the BBC main site
- sadly they don't then display it very well (to put it mildly).
Presumably Netsurf just has to have Browse, Fresco, Oregano 1 & 2's ability
to pretend to be something else and all would be well.
I seem to remember some earlier discussion as to why it doesn't but can't
seem to find it.
