Microsoft appears to be blocking Google Chrome users from accessing its Answers Communities. Tests performed by Myce, in which we did nothing more than tricking websites into thinking our Chrome browser was Internet Explorer or Firefox, revealed Microsoft Answers only didn’t load on browsers from Google.

Either it is resolved, it doesn’t impact all people, or I’m doing something that makes it not happen to me that I am unaware of.

My User-Agent:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/64.0.3282.186 Safari/537.36

I’m running Chrome 64.0.3282.186 (Official Build) (64-bit). No issue on my end viewing the Answer Communities.

A couple links that worked when I tried:
