    I strongly believe that declining this suggestion is wrong. This is not a feature request asking ORCID to support an esoteric browser. This is a bug report. Using a standards-conforming browser based on Firefox, Angel showed that the ORCID website does not conform to web standards because it refuses to work unless certain user agent strings are transmitted (which are easy to fake). Please discuss this suggestion with the developers.

    Please note that the user agent string is used to toggle the "officially supported browser" message, but it does not alter the functionality of the site. The user's experience shouldn't be downgraded based on user agent string. Have any of you experienced any behavior issues? If so, please let us know so that we can investigate. Best regards, ORCID Community Team

    This incorporates the most normally utilized programs, which dialects our clients read, and which coordinated destinations are giving the most advantages to clients. A few clients want to debilitate treats from a few administrations. For more data about the program, you can take a look at internet explorer browser support http://www.internetexplorerbrowsersupport.com/
