Different layout options for different browsers?

    I've been using SunriseBrowser instead of Safari as my main browser lately, and I just noticed that it seems to have a different layout, with different options when in MacRumors.

    At the top, the menu bar is different, I no longer have any pulldown menus (like Quicklinks/FAQ/Search) but instead I have Buddylist and Mark forums buttons.

    And then at the bottom of threads / boards it is different as well. I get Thread Tools boxes and Display mode/rate this thread options as well(actually this is kind of useful I like being able to thread search from down there :D ).

    So what would be the cause of this? It would be neat to have the Safari like menu bar at the top, but the SunriseBrowsers options at the bottom of threads/posts.

    Most likely Sunrise doesn't support the javascript, or whatever, associated with the drop-down menus that vBulletin provides - I used to have this problem when using IE5.1.x on OS9, since IE5.1.x barely supported HTML, let alone all the whizzy features that vB3.x had.

    Ok funny thing here. :D I figured it out. SunriseBrowser allows me to modify my user agent string. I totally forgot that I had messed around with it.

    It seems when I revert back to the default string (Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/125.5.7 (KHTML, like Gecko) SunriseBrowser/0.837 ) Macrumors displays the drop down menus like normal, but if I modify the user agent identification at all, it will revert back to the no dropdown menus / different options at the bottom of the page. Interesting. :p I so didn't realize that could have been the cause.
