Notes:

  1. You can easily set custom "user-agent" strings from the toolbar popup
  2. The extension uses a two-factor technique to mimic your default "user-agent" string, which is the most reliable method
  3. The extension does not use any resources when it is not spoofing the user-agent
  4. The extension enables user-agent spoofing on specific domains only; it is conversely possible to exclude certain domains from spoofing. Check the Options page for more info.
  5. You can set per-site user-agent strings

It is very helpfull BUT i can not set custom version of fake browser so I can not use service with existed presets due to outdated version browser it says.

Recent updates to this extension has completely prevented Facebook.com from functioning. This extension is completely useless now............It has broken Facebook entirely.. Worked great while it lasted.

Does what it's supposed to do, not to complete perfection, but i think it's deserving of a 5 star rating.
