Workaround for Whatsapp

"It's their hosting provider's code though - Cloudflare. I've seen browser checks from other providers failing as well, unfortunately. Could be the same thing they're trying to query, but hard to know. We have a workaround for little-endian for Whatsapp, but there they're using an opensource component that loudly complains in the web console that it only works on little endian. Icky, but at least it's easy to figure out where to look. With heavily obfuscated browser checks you can mostly just guess. I've spent some time trying to see what the code is doing debugging MiniBrowser on OSX, but to no avail. The Cloudflare script actually makes OSX's WebKit crash quite often :)"
