    Hello Testers

    Many current dynamic WEB systems with XML/XSLT can customize page
    output by detecting what type of user is accessing page. It can be
    recognition of IE and FIREFOX, plain text page for PDA or no javascript
    menu for search engine. Because this different templates have different
    resource needs for correct testing is neccesery to implement EASY WAY
    to change/define User Agent Switching in Jmeter.

    ---------- Implementation Notes ------------------------
    1. Allow Custom User Agent
    Be shure then we can change user agent strings in both HTTP probes by
    adding User aggent header in current custom hedaer module.

    2. Impelemnt changing by GUI
    Chris Pederik author of "User Agent switcher" for Firefox and Mozilla
    agreed to share with us logic for generating various user agent headres
    emulating different Web browsers and utilites.

    Code is in Javascript and XML under at
    http://www.chrispederick.com/

    There is also contact infos for Chris.
