Are you interested in protecting your #privacy and/or fucking with advertisers, and use #chrome or #firefox?

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.

@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.

@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.)
