  • (2019-06-23) Shrayus Masanam: Best UA Switcher out there.
  • (2019-03-25) Scott Grayban: I gave it a 4 star for one simple reason... you can set it for a single tab and/or set urls for specific UA. But it's still better then what's out there for the most part. It certainly allowed me to use web.skype.com !!
  • (2018-12-28) Andreas Toth: Illogical organisation of operating systems and browsers. Should be simplified by breaking down the three rows of mobile platforms, browsers, and operating systems to only two rows with the top one being the operating system which includes Windows, Linux, Android, macOS, iOS, etc., etc. The second row would then list the possible browsers for the selected operating system. There is absolutely **no** need for a third row listing mobile platforms as mobile platforms are operating systems! Note also the order of the rows, operating systems should be listed and selected before the browser since the operating system determines the browsers that are available under that operating system. I do hope this gets tidied up in a future version since I wish to use this extension as it is the only one that I can find that exist for both Chrome and Firefox and supports overriding per domain. In addition there is no "default" option, i.e., an option that returns the real user-agent. This is a must!
  • (2018-11-25) Chloe Whitten: A must-have for chromebook users, as many developers don't take into account this OS. Now you can easily switch! Additionally, other user-agent switching apps haven't been updated in a year, so their browsers are outdated.
  • (2018-11-01) 很方便 功能强大
  • (2018-10-07) Lieutenant BaconWaffles: Weibo sucks on Desktop because it doesn't sort by date posted like it does on mobile. Now I can trick Weibo into thinking I'm on my tablet instead of my PC.

  • (2017-03-17) Irina Svetlowa: Hi, I am interested in acquiring your extension "User-Agent Switcher". Please contact me at: [email protected]
  • (2017-02-10) Jerome Indefenzo: Needs more love. Setting the toolbar icon to the active UA is by far the best feature. The Edit User Agent button at the bottom doesn't work though. Also, it would be nice if it reported the latest stable version of the browser so I don't get a "You're using an older version of Chrome" on Google.
  • (2017-01-08) Nick Chen: very nice tool, hope regex pattern could be supported!
  • (2016-09-30) Decim Mushishi: there are some thing happened in "douyu.com".If it's not "all_urls",the "douyu.com" not play.
