Allow users using nightly tester tools to perform user agent switching with desktop firefox builds to different user agent strings. Functionality would follow similar functionality to existing add-ons for user agent switching. A set of user agents that will need to be included should target areas such as:

  • Webkit-based browsers on desktop and mobile (e.g. IPhone, Android Stock, Chrome)
  • Gecko-based browsers on mobile (e.g. Fennec Native)

Also allow masquerading as

  • some typical browsers for the main platforms (including platforms other than the current one):
    • IE for Windows
    • Safari for Mac
    • Konqueror (KHTML) for Linux
    • Konqueror (Webkit) for Linux
  • Anything the user wants to add by type-in or copy-paste

Of course, provide a prominent button and/or menuitem to revert to the current app's default. Maybe also revert at every restart (pref-dependent?).
Something which UA Switcher does not provide, but Konqueror does, is site-specific UA strings.

My choice of UA strings addon does both! By the way, it doesn't know other other UA string related stuffs. ;)
