chrome user agent bending

Oulook was being stupid - in that it was only letting me use the light version on OpenBSD - so it was time for some user agent trickery:

chrome --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/31.0.1650.63 Safari/537.36" \
	--incognito \
	-user-data-dir=/home/fred/tmp/ct \
	https://outlook.com/<domain>

And of course outlook now functions…

Why do web devs try to figure out what people are using and then break the content. It's like using chrome's dev tools to say your browser is an iPad to get videos to play.
