    Why does IE8 display this site incorrectly?

    I am using IE8 on a 32 bit Win 7 PC. I am curious to know why the Panasonic site displays in srtipped down form on one of my computers. It displays correctly on my notebook (same specs) and if I use Firefox and Opera
    This is what I am seeing.

    It appears that the web site is incorrectly parsing the internet header and identifying your PC as a mobile device. The website then automatically sends a simple version of the site used for mobile browsers. I had that happen on one or two sites but can't remember what I did about it. You could try an upgrade to IE9 but I can't guarantee that will fix it.

    You might also click on the compatability icon and see if that helps.
    Thanks John

    As this seems to be the only website affected, I think I'll hold off on upgrading to IE 9 until SusanBradley (Windows secrets newsletter) recommends it.

    What is that browser's useragent string? You can view it from this page:
