Some of us who live in "developing countries" (in Africa, Asia, Middle-East, Latin-America) have access to freebasics.com through a designated mobile service provider. This service allows one to browse a list of websites free of data charges. BBC, Deutsche Welle, News24, Gumtree, Facebook, Wikipedia and WikiHow are some of the useful sites that can be accessed through this service. This service is designed for mobile users and thus you need a mobile device to access it. However, using an emulator to emulate a mobile device and mobile browser has made it possible to run on desktop/laptop. One can however use your existing standard desktop browser by implementing a few tricks, this is how to do it:
Open your browser > type about:config in address bar and click enter > agree (click) that you will be careful at the prompt > right-click on the text displayed, select new and string in the pop-up menu and type *general.useragent.override* (without the asterisks) in the pop-up box and press OK > copy and paste the text below in the next pop-up box, click OK and restart browser. You can now access freebasics.com with the list of free sites using your standard browser. Works with Mozilla based browsers, tested with Palemoon and Seamonkey.

    Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU iPhone OS 3_0 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/528.18 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile/7A341 Safari/528.16
