Access Sprint Family Locator site with Safari Web Browsers
If you are like me and love using Safari as the default browser and also subscribe to Sprint's Family Locator service, you may have to switch to Firefox in order to access their website.

Not the case anymore. You must first enable the Develop menu in Safari, which you can now do in the Advanced section of Safari's Preferences panel. (Older versions must use the solution in this hint). Then click on the Develop menu in Safari, choose User Agent, and select the latest version of Firefox for Mac from the list before you log into the Sprint Family Locator website.

You will now be able to login and browse Sprint Family Locator website with Safari. So far, I have not noticed any features that don't work when using this workaround.

It's really annoying that so many sites are browser-sniffing, instead of just testing for provided features.

It's even more annoying when a site incorrectly browser-sniffs, denying you access even when it would work perfectly well.

The first link is wrong -- it links to a spam/search/ad site.
