A web browsers user agent is how a website knows what type of computer, operating system, and browsing app you are using. We’ll cover how to change the user agent for all popular modern web browsers available to the desktop user in Mac OS X and Windows, including Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. All new versions of Chrome include the ability to change user agent very easily, and it’s more powerful with more options than the simplified options available to Safari users. Chrome also instantly redraws pages with the new user agent, and if device metrics are set it will also use that devices set resolution size when redrawing the page. Note that if you hover over a specific user agent, the exact UA string used will appear in a yellow box alongside the menu item.
After selecting any of the user agents, you will find the currently open web page will refresh. Firefox can also do this by default, though it’s arguably the most clumsy of the modern browsers and thus not really recommended since some Firefox extensions handle it better. Keep in mind that changing the user agent does not change the way the web browser renders pages itself, unless it is being served user-agent specific content.
The Army insist on making some of it’s applications very IE friendly, making it tough to do things at home. When you tap on the URL bar in Safari on your iPhone or iPad and enter a phrase or term to search for, that search gets carried over to a search engine to find results, and on you go (unless you’re opting for on-page search). Currently, you can switch the Safari search feature to use either of four major engines, including Google (which is the default option), Yahoo, Bing (the default option used by Siri web searches), or DuckDuckGo. The choice you make here also impacts the web searches performed from Spotlight in iOS, as well as the selected text search tool, but has no impact with the searching on-page text function of Safari, so keep that in mind. Worth noting is that while Google is the default search choice for Safari in iOS, Siri defaults to using Bing. Better yet, install the Extension DuckDuckgo and forgo any tracking of your searches, no matter who you use.
Neither Google nor Microsoft are yet to comment on why this has started to happen to users running IE11.
Update 2: Microsoft has provided a statement to our pals over at Neowin regarding this issue.

A common issue with Mac computers and the Safari Internet browser is that sometimes YouTube videos display incorrectly: just a black screen or a black player window.
The easiest and simplest way to fix this YouTube error is to adjust some simple settings within Safari. If the above solution did not fix the YouTube problems, you should next try uninstalling and reinstalling Flash player. Navigate to this webpage and it will automatically detect your operating system and version of Flash.
After Flash Player has been completely removed, head on over to Adobe and download and install the latest version of Flash Player.
After you have installed the latest version of Flash Player, navigate Finder – Applications – Utilities – Disk Utility.

Some sites serve different themes, CSS, content, or even different sites to different browsers and OS’s, and many developers often need to change their own user agent to be able to test these abilities and build these alternate sites. With Chrome’s user agent overrides, the user agents device resolution can also be specified, forcibly redrawing the page within that resolution. If the page in question happens to serve different information to alternate browsers you may find the page looks different. For example, using an IE8 user agent is not the same as visiting a page with IE8 and letting it render the page, a need often mandatory for web developers.

Many users don’t realize this, but you can actually customize and change the default search engine used by Safari in iOS if you want to, which can be helpful for some users in locations where access to particular websites is controlled, or even if you just have a personal preference for one web search tool over another. Ultimately which you use is a matter of user preference, and they’re all pretty good options, each with strengths and some with a few weaknesses.
While making a change to Safari does not impact Siri web searches directly, you can issue a command to Siri to use different web search engines like Google or Yahoo if you want to.

The search engine works absolutely fine on Google Chrome, and FireFox, and Opera, and Safari.
Microsoft is telling IE11 to display Google in compatibility mode, which renders Google broken.
Towards the middle of the page, you’ll see links to download the Flash Player uninstall utility. For example, changing a user agent to a mobile device and mobile browser may cause some web pages to send you to their mobile websites, or serve a different looking page through a responsive layout.
For that you will need to actually take the time to run Internet Explorer in a virtual machine on top of Mac OS X, that is free and fairly easy to set up.
For that you will need to actually take the time to run Internet Explorer in a virtual machine on top of Mac OS X, that is free and fairly easy to set up if necessary. It’s fairly likely that Siri will also obey the Safari search changes in the future, however. On Google’s own Product Forum, users are complaining that Google is showing up in Legacy mode for them.
Note that this issue is very rare now because most YouTube videos use HTML 5 to play videos instead of Flash.
This way, you can check to see if YouTube works with your computer, but with a different browser. I graduated from Emory University in Atlanta, GA in 2002 with a degree in Computer Science and Mathematics.
The results are in the wrong place, almost as if someone came along and blew the search page up. If it works with Firefox, go through your Safari Preferences and check for any incorrect settings.
