"Your Browser is out of date" - what do I do?

  • We have an old laptop - Windows Vista.

    I am trying to access a website and it keeps saying "your browser is out of date".
    Is there anything I can do to sort this out on Opera as I would like to stay with them?
    Thanks in advance.

  • Presumably you're using Opera 36.
    Unfortunately as the current Opera is 43, 36 will now be considered to be very out of date by some sites, which are annoyingly starting to actually block old versions of all browsers with no means to override this.
    Rather a pain if you're stuck on an old operating system for any reason.
    I think probably all you can do is find an extension which will spoof the browser user agent string, so the site thinks you're using something newer.
