Blocked on flowkey

  • When I try to start flowkey, I get "You are using an outdated browser" on their website, trying to get me to install Chrome. Is there a way to circumvent this?

    This site seems to be using a very primitive method of disallowing browser with incompatible user-agent strings.

    Try using an extension which fakes your user-agent. I'm using User-Agent Switcher for Google Chrome but I had to edit the "Chrome on Windows" entry first, as it uses an outdated string. Here's the one that I used to pass through that "outdated browser" warning message on flowkey (I haven't tried the site's functionality though):
