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.
