Time to hack the "Internet Explorifying" proxy... I could imagine that the
   user adds cookie to cookies.txt for each site where you want your
   User-Agent: tag rewritten, where the cookie looks something like:

   fake_user_agent=Microsoft Internet Explorer/x.yz (...)

The proxy sees the cookie, nukes it from the request, then rewrites your
   User-Agent: header.
