    Well I tried looking around and didnt come up with anything.

    I am a fan of safari rather then firefox. All im looking for is a plug in that tricks the server side into thinking that safri is actually firefox. Alot of my school sites support safari just fine, but now are blocked into using firefox. It gets very annoying to switch from one to another, so the question is, what can i do?

    Try this:

    Safari->Preferences->Advanced->Show Develop menu.
    Safari->Develop->User Agent->Firefox

    In Safari, bring up the preferences and in the advanced tab you can enable the developer menu. In the developer menu you can switch the user agent to Firefox.
