Great Add-ons for Mobile Testing

When you want to change your User-Agent name of your Browser (its nothing but your browser name which sent to the server on every request) you can use the "User Agent Switcher" Add-ons of Fire fox to change your user-agent....

What is the Special about Changing User-Agent?

The "User-Agent" is the only way (as of I know) the server come to know from which browser the user was triggered this request, based on that server may change its display logic...

If you try from your mobile, you will see a different version as compared to your from your web browser (IE or Mozilla), that difference. If you are a mobile developer want to know how the data are displayed for a Specific model you can give the user agent string of that Mobile then trigger the request.

For Example when you change your user-agent as "BlackBerry8800/4.2.1 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100" and hit from you Fire-fox browser, the content will be displayed as it was seen in Blackberry 8800 Mobile…

These Very good Add-ons if you need to test with different mobile devices (as I do right now)…J.. Please feel free to add your comments ….
