This is based on the ID string your browser sends.  Most Linux browsers have 
the option of "impersonating" a different browser, based on which site your 
are viewing.  Under Konqueror (my browser) this is under the "User Agent" 
settings in the Configuration dialog box.  I believe there's a similar option 
in Mozilla.

Most sites with this silly restriction work just fine using Konqueror, once 
this impersonation is in effect.
