Chrome - Switch User Agent

To force temporary user agent for web testing by example, you can do it from the developer tools.

Developer Tools → Settings → Overrides

To force permanently the user agent, you have to use an extension as :

Ultimate User Agent Switcher

Remark :

As soon you change the user agent of your browser, you can't download extension from Google Webstore. To download the crx, use this tips (on Chrome only, change the user agent from the developer tools):

//replace the ~~~~ characters with the part of the URL I pointed out above.

https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx?response=redirect&x=id%3D~~~~%26uc

To install an extension from a crx file, open Extension page and drag and drop the crx inside.
