I'm trying to login in to a website (PERKINS1.COM) wich is a food supplier for my company, with safari I always get a error message "invalid web browser try a more updated web browser IE or Netscape I tried that and I also tried Firefox it still doesn't work.
I'm almost sure that the company that created that "login system" created that system only for windows.
Does anybody have any ideias how to work around that.

Hi!

If you download Camino and install the additional 'Camitools', it will let you spoof your browser's identity to the website.

I just tried setting it to 'Internet Explorer 6' and was at least able to reach the username & password prompt, so I'd assume it works for the rest as well.

If you want to give that a try, download camino here:
www.caminobrowser.org

and then download the additional 'Camitools' from here:
www.pimpmycamino.com

and when it's all installed, go to Camino's preferences (command+ and the last pane should now be Camitools. Select the 'view' options and at the bottom left you can select which browser will be reported to the website.
Select internet explorer and it should work...

I can't believe it worked I have been in every site for this and all the other answers didn't work, I'm new to computers and even more to Mac and I have been so excited about having my first Mac (Macbook pro) it's so much better than windows, but I was ready to quit, thanks alot.

if you prefer using Safari, you could try Safari Enhancer, it has an option to change which browser Safari identifies itself as

I tried Safari Enhancer and set it to IE, Netscape and nothing would let it log in. I tried the latest Firefox and even latest Opera set to emulate IE and they would not work either. Only Camino with Camino Enhancer would let one go to the Login page. Amazing. Someone did not do their homework when designing the page. Firefox works with almost any page I ever visit

Agreed!

I made sure it made the changes to Safari. I was more shocked even Firefox would not let me go to the login page.

Hehe, weird...

I didn't specifically say Camino because I knew Safari wouldn't work, I just happened to be set to IE in camino and gave it a whirl...

Glad it worked out for you!

Is popup/ad-blocking turned off in Camino?

You haven't said if you've tried IE for mac yet? Maybe that'll work if Camino spoofing doesn't. If not, your only other options would be emulation (if you're on a powerPC mac: Virtual PC or GuestPC) or dual-booting (only works on intel based macs).

Personally I'd also get in touch with the company and suggest they get it fixed... Maybe say you can't use IE due to the security risks it poses for your company's sensitive information

Went to that site with Firefox (no extensions except AdBlock Plus) and it works just fine.

Edited to add: Oh, I see. Once you try to log in, it will give you this page: http://tibernet.net/htSysMsg/BadBrowser.htm

I GO ONE STEP FURTHER THEN THAT.
I can see the ordering form page for about 1 to 2 seconds then I get this message:

Commerce has launched a separate pop-up window to begin the ordering process. If you are not able to view the ordering window you must temporarily disable any pop-up blockers being applied by your web browser.

Pop-up blockers are only available on the following platforms and may vary depending on the type and version of your browser. Click on a link below for information on how to disable common pop-up blockers:

Internet Explorer (on Windows XP)


Google Toolbar

Internet Explorer (on Windows 2003 SP1)


Yahoo Toolbar

For example, if a pop-up window is blocked by Internet Explorer (on Windows 2003 SP1) users will hear a sound and notification will be presented in both the Information Bar and the Status Bar. Click on the notification in either bar to display a menu containing options enabling you to temporarily allow pop-ups, add the Commerce site to the Allow list or customize pop-up blocker settings.

Once the Commerce pop-up ordering window is open you may close this window.

Can someone help me with this. I've come this close and I would hate to give up.

When you go to the website, look at the very top of the page. If it displays something that looks like this attatched image, it is because of Camino blocking the pop-up.

If you can click "unblock" that would work. Alternatively you can go to Camino's preferences (Camino -> Preferences) and on the "Web Features" pane you can either turn off the "Block pop-up windows" option, or if you know the url of the site that is sendind the pop-up, you can add that to the "Exceptions List"
