In addition to what you mentioned above, geography can also be a factor in
determining what site you "get" to view. Some redirect according to IP
address. I think Amazon used to do this, though it doesn't seem to anymore
for amazon.com and amazon.ca.

Many websites do present different content based on the browser they detect
is visiting them.

Sometimes this is good (eg: for mobile devices, they get the
mobile-optimised version), but sometimes it is bad.

I recommend contacting the admin of the website to tell them how this is
interfering with usability.

There is a website called doubletap.online
Its a Canadian site, but has podcasts about accessible tech.
However, when I view it in foirefox or waterfox I cannot find a link to
the basic podcast address, only I tunes and some specific apps. However
when I visit it in Safari on the I phone I see the normal link leaving me
in the silly position of copying over the link feeds.bla bala to the pc
podcatcher address field manually. Is this a waterfox/firefox thing? or
is it me or perhaps an nvda thing. I'm using the latest beta of nvda
2019.1.
