Description

User-Agent - a string that is sent along to any website you visit. This is a sort of "fingerprint" your browser leaves behind which contains:
- The name and version of your browser;
- The name of the operating system (Mac, Windows, Linux, etc.) and its version;
- Information about some of the plugins installed on the browser;
- Other information that identifies and exposes you.

This extension has been created to stop data leakage. It automatically replaces User-Agent strings after a specified period of time with a randomly selected one. User-Agent strings can also be set manually. The extension is incredibly lightweight, using very few resources. User-Agent randomization can be customized by the user (what browsers and OS are spoofed, etc.). Exceptions list available with option of wildcards. Protects against Javascript exploits to hide your identity and protect your anonymity.

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
