User-Agent Switcher Chrome Extension

I’ve created a useful Chrome extension, User-Agent Switcher, to easily change the default User Agent setting of Chrome browser. Install this extension from here. This extension has few preset User-Agent strings, and you can add a custom User-Agent string as well.


How To Use?

Once installed successfully, you would notice extension’s icon on the browser toolbar as shown in the above screenshot. Click on this icon to change the User-Agent setting of your browser.

To add custom User-Agent string, click on the link “Set Your Custom User-Agent”. This would launch extension’s options section.


You don’t need to restart the browser in order to apply the changes. To check and verify your User-Agent string, you should bookmark this link which also shows your public IP address and geolocation on Google Maps.
