Description of User-Agent Switcher for Chrome 1.0.3

BS Editor: Spoofs & Mimics navigator.userAgent and navigator.vendor strings for specific sites

The User-Agent Switcher for Chrome is a navigator.userAgent and navigator.vendor spoofing extension. This allows Chrome users to access sites that intentionally or unintentionally serve incompatible content or block Chrome.

The extension allows you to set a specific filtering list, so it will automatically switch user-agent strings based on the domain or URL you specify. Also, it will use and auto-update a list of sites known to use incorrect user-agent sniffing (which can be disabled.)

The user-agent switcher does not modify HTTP headers because the Chrome Extensions API doesn't yet have a way to change them. This means sites like whatismyuseragent.com will not detect a change :( (I will add this as soon as Chrome adds an API for it.) Until Chrome adds this, sites that sniff user-agent strings at the network level will see through the spoofing. Fortunately, most sites just detect the user-agent at the JavaScript level. Also, spoofing the user-agent string does not solve all incompatibilities, and may introduce other incompatibilities.

Version 1.0.3 modifies the name, as the previous one is trademarked.

Requirements: Mac OS X 10.5 or higher
Platform: PowerPC / Intel
