Also beware if you use Chrome / Edge :upside_down_face:



My univ website works only on chrome (as per the website). Later I found out it also works on Chromium.

Honestly, the website is a very simple one, and it should also work work with Firefox. But probably the devs tested it on chrome, and to avoid any “errors” on the user’s side so they included a browser check that would refuse to load the website if you weren’t accessing it with chromium based browsers.

Try something like this addon on Firefox and see if you can bypass the restriction:


Yep, that’s clearly poor webdev, i also suggest to use user-agent :wink:

I had to do that with a few of my vendor sites we use at work. They would refuse to load if your agent string wasn’t Chrome. Just used one of the agent string plugins to change from Chromium to Chrome, and wala, let me in just fine.

Thanks! This worked.
Time to remove Chromium


While we’re at it: I was surprised to see The Great Suspender flagged as maleware and disabled by Edge.

Apparently there’s also some shady business going on, but it’s still(?) available in the Chrome store.
