Default Emulation Mode

Please Login to Remove!

Okay so in browser configuration there is an option to change the emulation mode. What exactly is this and what do the options mean?

If you set emulation mode to "BlackBerry" you will automatically get redirected to mobile friendly sites (wap sites), if you change it to IE it won't.. Those are the only 2 I messed with. I'm sure someone can else go into this more in depth.

It basically allows the browser to present itself as other browsers when connecting to an HTTP server. Some sites will provide a different version of the site based on the browser you're using.
