Default [Q] Browser: Change Touchpad Browser Identity

Wanted to see if anyone else thought of this, but I noticed that youtube app is really a shortcut to the site via the browser. Also went to Stormpulse.com and it did a great job displaying the flash.

Of course Hulu.com said the browser isnt compatiable which brings me to ask if anyone figured out how to change the browser type from whatever it is now to say Internet Explorer 8?

I bet that hulu will work great on it!

Default Certain flash videos won't play on websites.

I wonder if the website recognize it as a mobile device and stops playing the video. If so, can that be changed?

did you try the hulu trick? (that makes adobe flashplayer identifies itself as windows instead of a mobile device)
