What is User-Agent Switcher?
User-Agent Switcher is a Chrome extension that allows you to easily switch between user-agents, enabling you to mimic, spoof, or fake other browsers, devices, or search engine spiders. This extension is useful for developers testing how a page responds to different browsers and for accessing certain pages that only allow specific browsers. It also changes the javascript-based 'navigator userAgent'. Browse with predefined user-agents or add your own to match your needs.

Great extension that allows one to use Linux with disney+ again in 2022. It would be nice if there was a feature that restricted the user agent switching to a set of pages of your choice however. I forgot to revert back to "default" and my WP admin site presented me with a red message about using an "outdated browser" after I had switched to MS Edge on Windows for disney plus on my Linux Mint / Vivaldi setup.

Works great. Spoofs the http header and the javascript navigator.useragent object but not the javascript navigator.appversion object.
