Description from extension meta

Spoofs & Mimics User-Agent strings.

Image from store User-Agent Switcher for Chrome
Description from store 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/.

  • (2020-09-24) Ray Foss: Extremely immoral and should be reported to the ethics board. They removed the Navigator spoofing feature, which renders this mostly useless and exposes users to privacy risks.

  • (2020-09-15) Eugene Abovsky: No longer overrides navigator.userAgent Useless

  • (2020-09-10) Ray Foss: ... No Js navigator spoofing.... HUGE privacy oversight.
  • (2020-09-04) Łukasz: Outdated
  • (2020-09-01) Tom C: This does what it says on the tin, however I'm not sure whether a recent update has been done to it but it totally kills a lot of sites by creating fatal JS errors, preventing any JS from running. Not all sites, but enough that I've needed to disable the extension. I've switched to another UA spoofing extension now, although this one did work fine until recently.

  • (2020-08-27) BUG: does not change navigator.userAgent This extension only changes the HTTP header User Agent, the JS navigator.userAgent UA stays the same.
  • (2020-08-20) Varun Agrawal: Google forgot to update it since a decade. No latest user agents.

  • (2020-07-31) Lorraine Lee: Seems to have settings for browser but not OS, which is what I really need, given the number of commercial websites that specifically exclude GNU/Linux.
  • (2020-07-31) Steffen Kistner: Stand 31.07.2020 Die Datei background.js des Addons (C:\Users\*******\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Extensions\ffhkkpnppgnfaobgihpdblnhmmbodake\1.8.26_0\background.js) ist mit dem Trojaner HEUR:Trojan.Script.Generic infiziert. Um ein false positive auszuschließen habe ich sie an Kaspersky zur Analyse gesendet und es wurde bestätigt. "Die Erkennung ist korrekt. Hier ist der Schadcode (von background.js): var promo = function () ....... promo ();"
  • (2020-07-30) Дмитрий Раков: Не работает. После переключения, navigator.userAgent не меняется.

  • (2020-07-22) Paul Kay: Won't emulate "Chrome" browser on other chromium based browsers
  • (2020-07-21) Johnny Mason: No longer works. Either it's because it hasn't been updated in almost a year or websites are getting wise to this and putting in measures to stop this kind of spoofing.
  • (2020-07-20) Anatolii: Ставил плагин как способ восстановить Old Design Youtube, но перестало работать. Забавно, но данный плагин (от гугл), и при его включении у меня почему-то трансляции вообще не открываются!

  • (2017-01-02, v:1.0.43) C. B.: Funcionou, mas não mais...
    Instalei funcionou maravilhosamente bem, até antes de votar com 5 estrelas. De repente começou a ficar lento e daí resolví desinstalar para reinstalar. Agora não consigo instalar, vem uma mensagem de ERRO, pedindo para eu reinicia o navegador e nada resolve mais. O que fazer para consertar isso? Grato.
