I can seem to find no way to accurately modify the User Agent via any method I could find in the forums.
The story. Revitalizing old laptop for one-laptop-per-child event. I need to keep the browser thinking that it is a mobile device so that the heaviest-memory-hog online apps don't crush the performance. So, I want IRON to display the Google Mobile interfaces for GMail, Google Calendar, Docs, etc. So if the user-agent thinks that the browser is a Droid or something, the apps are slicker, faster and more direct.
Downloaded Chrome UA Spoofer ... does nothing.
Created UA.ini containing "Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.3; en-us) AppleWebKit/999+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/999.9" and saved it in:
-- /usr/lib/iron-linux/opt ... does nothing
-- /usr/lib/iron-linux ... does nothing
-- /home/username/.config/chromium ... does nothing
Tools: Developer Tools: Settings
- Override User-Agent (Chose Android blah blah blah) ... does nothing.
SRWare Iron Linux v.17.1000.0 (DB 121963)
What am I doing wrong? Why can't IRON use the same Chome Store (Google Play) as my desktop?
Any help would be appreciated!
