Opera on Mac does not work with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

  • Their supported browsers are Chrome, Firefox and Safari which is making me run Chrome just for that.

    I've tried all the possible user agent switchers but none works

    i also saw the suggestions on a similar topic for windows but nothing works.

    Thing is, as i see it is that even when the user agent is switched, windows.navigator reports
    OPR/68.0.3618.125 (in my case) in the end with any user agent switcher that i've tried.

    I was able to confirm that via this site: https://webbrowsertools.com/useragent/?method=normal&verbose=false

    example :

    i change the useragent via extension to show as chrome on mac.

    The user agent header indeed shows as : Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_11) AppleWebKit/601.1.27 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/47.0.2526.106 Safari/601.1.27

    BUT user-agent according to window.navigator is
    Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_5) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/81.0.4044.138 Safari/537.36 OPR/68.0.3618.125

    I believe that this OPR in the end is what Oracle are looking at and then blocking me.

    Annoying as hell.

    Any suggestions ?

    thanks!
