Hello folks. Let’s see today how we can access sites that just accept for example Internet Explorer or where network that just accept the use of Internet Explorer instead of Google Chrome. Many cases, the control of that is made by browser’s user agent string. To change that in Google Chrome, follow the steps below.
--user-agent='Mozilla/4.0 (X11; U; i686; en-US) AppleWebKit/533.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Ubuntu/11.04 Chrome/11.0.342.1 Safari/533.2'
For example, in my case, this field is filled up with:
and I have changed to:
/usr/bin/chromium-browser --user-agent='Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; i686; en-US) AppleWebKit/533.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Ubuntu/11.04 Chrome/11.0.342.1 Safari/533.2'
Restart the Google Chrome and try to access that site you didn’t have access.
That’s it. See you next time.
