Change User Agent on Opera Mobile 9.5

2 Comments

I came across an interesting post on pocketnow.com , it tells us how to change the user agent on Opera Mobile 9.5

In the address bar, type in

about:config
scroll down on the page to item User Agent and click on it.
It says Spoof user agent ID

1 is Opera Mobile 9.5
2 is Firefox
3 is desktop IE 6

Save , and you are done

    I have having some troubles getting Google to recognize Opera 9.51 Beta on my WM6 as being a mobile browser. Consequently, it was displaying gmail and the other assorted Google sites in their full desktop equivalent. After digging around, I found the following to alleviate the issue until Google updates their definition of mobile browsers to include this one.

    In opera:config, User Perfs there is a setting called “Custom User-Agent”.

    Sure to http://www.zytrax.com/tech/web/mobile_ids.html and pick a string that is appropriate for your phone. I have an ATT 8525 so I chose “Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 4.01; Windows CE; PPC; 240×320)”. Given that I am emulating PocketIE, I don’t know that this was a good choice, but it is working and displaying the mobile version of Google pages now.

    Thanks for the tip Jon. I am assuming Opera 9.5 does that coz Opera Mobile 9.5 is based on the same browser engine as Opera 9.5 for desktop
