User-Agent Information and Tools

I’ve decided to dedicate a spot on the blog for the user-agent information I’ve been providing over the last few years. From now on you can reference this post from the right navigation under the tools section.


Here are four very good lists and classifications of user-agents:



  1. http://www.user-agents.org/index.shtml
  2. http://www.botsvsbrowsers.com/
  3. http://www.tnl.net/ua
  4. http://www.pgts.com.au/pgtsj/pgtsj0212d.html

Here is my huge user-agent XML import file for use with the User Agent Switcher Firefox add-on: AgentStrings20080223.xml (19.67 KB). Read here how you can use this tool for testing. The current file contains the following user-agents for your browser spoofing pleasure:
