Are you interested in protecting your and/or fucking with advertisers, and use or ?

Check out my extension RandomUA, which randomizes your User-Agent header for each request in a way that preserves compatibility but really mucks up tracking.

Please boost and send me comments on what features you'd like to see!

@tindall this is cool! unfortunately I can't use it in firefox because it trips up gmail, which says my browser is unsupported. I can use the basic html view fine but... it's just too unplesant to look at.

@mno Because it's random, that will happen sometimes. You should be able to just refresh the page and it will work. I'll try to address it in a future update.

@tindall well, since refreshing it and hoping for a nice value to pop-up is annoying, is there any way for me to manually change my UA settings? if I turn off the extension my browser doesn't update it automatically to what it was before

@mno Not at the moment. I think I know a way to fix your issue, though; I'll push an update momentarily.

@mno You're welcome!

It's in the queue to be approved. Hopefully this should fix your issue for now; I'm working on an options panel that will allow you to disable the extension for certain websites.

@tindall update just came in for me and it's working! thanks again for the quick fix!!

@tindall @mno would the ability to whitelist sites be a relevant fix?

a whitelist would make this potentially havoc-wreaking add-on more palatable to me because i be assured it wouldn't break sites that actually matter (banking, email, etc.)

@alyx @tindall they already mentioned to me further down the thread that they're working on that next!
