When I saw this mentioned on macintouch yesterday, I immediately tried
with lynx... works fine..

also works with iCab, though it DIDN'T work when I had the user-agent set
to something like "<the correct Mozilla start> (REALLY ICAB)"..  but it worked
when I used the generic iCab identity setting..

I just tried it with links, and it works there also, but I'm not sure if
links is sending Mozilla or not.

so they seem to still be doing SOME kind of user-agent filtering, just not
as much as previously..
