I suggest that...

ORCID website should detect browser based on features and not userAgent strings

While using the PaleMoon browser, I've found that orcid.org uses browser detection based on useragent and not on features, as it should be. Palemoon is an up-to-date alternative originally derived from Firefox. It does have the functionality of a modern browser. However, the ORCID site detects it as "We notice you are using an older browser"
If I change the useragent to mimic Firefox, the warning goes away, which proves detection is based on useragent.
