Change and Hide User-Agent through Glype proxy

You can adjust the settings for your "virtual browser" below. These options affect the information the proxy sends to the target server.

Glype uses smart technique to increase privacy level because it let users able to change User-Agent and referrer, manage cookies...

Format for human-operated web browsers

The User-Agent string format is currently specified by section 5.5.3 of HTTP/1.1 Semantics and Content. The format of the User-Agent string in HTTP is a list of product tokens (keywords) with optional comments. For example, if a user's product were called WikiBrowser, their user agent string might be WikiBrowser/1.0 Gecko/1.0. The "most important" product component is listed first.

The parts of this string are as follows:
- product name and version (WikiBrowser/1.0)
- layout engine and version (Gecko/1.0)

During the first browser war, many web servers were configured to only send web pages that required advanced features, including frames, to clients that were identified as some version of Mozilla.[5] Other browsers were considered to be older products such as Mosaic, Cello or Samba and would be sent a bare bones HTML document.

For this reason, most Web browsers use a User-Agent string value as follows:

Mozilla/[version] ([system and browser information]) [platform] ([platform details]) [extensions]. For example, Safari on the iPad has used the following:
Mozilla/5.0 (iPad; U; CPU OS 3_2_1 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/531.21.10 (KHTML, like Gecko) Mobile/7B405

What is a "User Agent"?

A User Agent is a short string that web browsers and other applications send to identify themselves to web servers.
Unfortunately, most browsers falsify part of their User-Agent header in an attempt to be compatible with more web servers.
