I can't find it, maybe it's a duplicate, but I want an option (isn't it basic functionality?) for changing the useragent within the stock internet browser. It's possible to do with user.js and switching developermode now.

For people who doesn't know: with the useragent you can let think website you're a different browser, for example I always get mobile (basic) versions of websites. By acting like I'm the latest Google Chrome brwoser, you'll probably get the desktop version of the website. Which also works good and have tons of functionalities.

Please, I've had it on Android with the stock browser, Chrome browser and with Dolphin browser. For years...

Other browsers aren't a solution, but a workaround. I want an out-of-the-box solution.

Hi @RobNas - I really want that too, but this is still a dup with an older post requesting the same. Please add your ideas there as comments, or suggested solutions as new answers (link in my earlier comment)
