Utility to make web sites think that IE7 is IE6 for compatibility reasons

I am working on the train on my way to the Nottingham Ignite Tour and while on the way say this in an old Microsoft Download Notification mail.  Some websites check what make and version of web browser you are using before deciding what to send you in the way of HTML etc.  This is all very good and often leads to a great user experience with the website, unless the website does not know how to deal with IE7 and then throws a bit of a wobbler.

If you meet a website like this, then this utility is for you:

User Agent String Utility Version 2

This utility opens an Internet Explorer 7.0 window that is configured to report its identity to Web sites as being Internet Explorer 6.0 for sites not yet configured to recognize version 7.0.
