User Agent Switcher

There are websites that do things which you don’t want, based on detection of your browser. I’m working on one at the moment – my predecessor has left me 1750 lines of javascript which starts off by checking if you use Internet Explorer and refusing to proceed if not. Uurgh.
Firefox users in this predicament – grab yourself a copy of the User Agent Switcher Extension. It gives you a Menu->Tools item that allows you to change your apparent browser ID. Now, the Firefox people just have to figure out how to avoid a browser restart after installing extensions. It’s kind of annoying when you have 10 tabs open.
