    I’m trying to get the browser widget to identify itself as Chrome so that I can (attempt to) load a particular site. Is there a trick to how you format the user-agent string when you set the widget’s user-agent in its object inspector or should I just be able to enter something along these lines…

    Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_7) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/91.0.4472.77 Safari/537.36

    This doesn’t work BTW (the page I attempt to load tells me to get Chrome).

    Any ideas?
