Overview

Spoofs & Mimics User-Agent strings.

Ever needed to quickly switch between user-agent strings on the fly? Developing a site that needs to work on both mobile browsers and desktop browsers? Sick of some archaic site blocking you because you're not using Netscape 4? The User-Agent Switcher for Chrome is the answer. With this extension, you can quickly and easily switch between user-agent strings. Also, you can set up specific URLs that you want to spoof every time. Please note that this does not provide improved privacy while browsing the Internet and that some sites might have other means to figure out that the browser is not what it pretends to be. Running this extension can have performance impact on your browsing experience due to its need to intercept and modify the data communicated to the server. NOTE: if some sites have problems after using a mobile user-agent, and won't switch back no matter what you spoof, you will need to switch the user-agent back to Chrome *and* clear your cookies for the sites to treat the browser normally again. By installing this item, you agree to the Google Terms of Service and Privacy Policy at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/.

As of Chrome 125.0.6422 and Edge 125.0.2535 - this extension is broken, unfortunately.

I develop web-based data management solutions, and I use the user agent as my debugging "back door", appending a a keyword to the end of the default user-agent that my code knows to look for. This extension makes that easy. ONE CAVEAT: The Permanent Spoof List isn't what it sounds like! It's actually a black list, disabling to extension for any entered domain, and it's not easy to undo. Author! Are you listening? You need to fix this!
