Why does Google Mail/ Calendar/ Maps, Facebook not work or show mobile version?

Some websites discriminate against your browser.

If you have Midori older than 0.3.5, go to Preferences > Network > Identify As, and choose Custom. Paste this into the entry:

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux) AppleWebKit/531.2+ Midori/0.3

If this doesn't do the trick, try choosing Safari or Firefox.

Many other websites use similar means of detecting the browser.

Ideally Google would follow their own recommendation at some point: http://code.google.com/p/doctype/wiki/ArticleGoogleChromeCompatFAQ#UserAgent_Detection
