Can I define how a webviewer is identified by a webserver?

Hi there,


I have observd that I often get mobile themes of website when accessing them through a webviewer (on Mac). I think that this might depend on the information that is sent by it. In my case the information is:


  • Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_10_1) AppleWebKit/600.1.25 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/531.9


And another question: if I come back to a frequent visited website I am always offered the same "first-visiting" screen. After clicking this away in a browser I am not show this information again. If I do the same with a webviewer, it always pops-up. I suppose this must have something to do with accepting Cookies?


Is it possible to alter the user-agent information? And can I change the cookies-behaviour?


I remember t have read somethin like - that Filemaker uses (on Mac) the Webkit of Safari? If so, should I alter settings in Safari so that these settings are also valid in Filemaker?


Thanks in advance,
