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/.

  • (2020-02-02) Raul Peixoto: This extension worked for months, however recently it no longer works for javascript detection. It changes the useragent for server side testing, but detecting it with javascript returns the default useragent. This one, seems to be based on the same code but works on both server and javascript. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/user-agent-switcher/kchfmpdcejfkipopnolndinkeoipnoia Please fix

  • (2019-12-16) 건시스템: It is very convenient for testing when developing mobile environment on PC.
  • (2019-12-14) Mike Ellis: I have 3, so far, websites that don't work on Chromebooks because they require Chrome browser on Windows, which can be resolved with a custom user agent string, "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko" not natively available in the program but can be added. The problem is the only way to modify settings is per user. If I came across a new website, I would have to log into 200+ accounts and make modifications each and every time. Not really a viable solution. In G Suite Admin control panel, under "Device management > Chrome > Apps & extensions > Users & browsers" the app has the option for "Policy for extensions" that accepts JSON. This program exports a JSON file, but it doesn't work when applied to the "Policy for extensions". If the exported JSON could be plugged into the "Policy for extensions" section, I could modify the program for all users across the organization in a matter of minutes. Please add this functionality and, I would suggest, the User-Agent I mentioned above, as it seems to solve a lot of issues that none of the default user agents fix.

  • (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.
