Browser User Agent Switcher

http://live.pirillo.com/ – Starvos wanted to know how he could make a website believe he was running Internet Explorer when he was really running FireFox.

Luckily, you can download two extensions that can do this for you!

IETab will let you run the Internet Explorer rendering engine (Trident) instead of Firefox’s rendering engine (Gecko):

IE Tab, an extension from Taiwan, embeds Internet Explorer in a Mozilla/Firefox tab. This extension is derived from the famous extension IE View, but much different. While IE View always open IE-only pages in a seperate Internet Explorer window, IE Tab can view them in a Mozilla/Firefox tab.

User Agent Switcher will let you actually switch the user agent string sent to the web server; letting you fool the websiee into thinking you’re using Internet Explorer, without actually running it:

The User Agent Switcher extension adds a menu and a toolbar button to switch the user agent of the browser.

  1. Hmmmmmmmmmm……………………. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’ve never run into a website that Firefox couldn’t handle all by itself. Why do you need to fake them out?
