Very much agree!!!, I use firefox on rawhide now, but I have disabled that stuff. It was not working very well, but I installed Opera and it got better right away and it started working better. Incredible how it detected Opera and started functioning right away.
On konqueror, I like konqueror, but It does not give me the ability to use the agent switcher like it did before (KDE 3.5.9). Now I can't visit pages that are for IE like I did before :(
I get the message:
"Sorry, but because of security considerations Netscape Version 6 is not supported by VistaNet applications. "
I have tried
Settings --> Configure Konqueror --> Web Browsing --> Browser Identification and try to put the site in there, but I can't :( it just allows me to type http and that is it :(
I use Opera for these pages because Firefox(with User Agent enabled) also fails. I have to use it since it is the only one that works and the other choice is to use Windows and native IE. But as long as it works, I am okay with it.

They were not responsible, but they acknowledged that a third party would get the information. That is the part that bothers/bothered many users.
