Flickr: new iteration of site is not fully functional

The latest iteration of the Flickr site officially only works and should only show up on the latest Chrome, FireFox and Safari.  Strange enough when launched from the Playbook browser the site somehow recognizes it as one of the mentioned browser and launches new functionality that is obviously not compatible with Playbook and dont work.

 

The questions are: is there a way to trick sites to believe the Playbook browser is IE?  Are there any setting that may allow the Playbook browser to run this particular site properly?

 

Thanks to any and all.

Thank you.  It is something I have done however, the other browsers are very slow and not as stable as the native Playbook browser. 

A good alternative but not a fix.
