Convince itunes that my XP is a mac - Mac Applications & Software

Is there a program that will let me browse web sites like itunes and report to the site that my OS is OSX and my browser is Safari when I'm really running xp? Thanks in advance. If not does anyone know what itunes looks for to confirm that a visitor is using a mac?...

    Why would you need to do that? Apple's web site works fine when you're
    browsing from a PC, it doesn't do anything extra for Mac users.

    If you're talking about the iTunes Music Store, as far as I know it
    can't be accessed from any web browser, not even on a Mac using Safari.
    It only works from the iTunes music player software. You'll have to
    either get a Mac, or wait for Apple to release a Windows version of the
    software (expected by the end of the year).

    I don't think this will help you with iTunes, however there is a browser
    that will let you do this. Install Firebird, then the User-Agent Preferences
    extension. Set your User-Agent to be the same as Safari (or whichever
    browser you're targeting), and then you're set.

    Firebird can be had from http://www.mozilla.org - not sure where the
    preferences extension is, but there's a link for extensions somewhere on
    that site. Whilst you're there, I can thoroughly recommend 'Click to Run'
    (stops Flash from running until you explicitly click on the box -in other
    words, prevents Flash adverts whilst allowing legitimate use) and also 'Nuke
    Image' (removes any image from the current page - useful for dumping still
    more adverts).



    Cheers,
