JMeter is not a browser, but it can send the same HTTP requests as a browser.

So if you are asking whether JMeter can look like a particular browser
as far as the server is concerned, then yes, provided that you send
the correct requests to the server.

The main way that the servers detect the browser type is via the
header User-Agent.

You can set this using the header manager.

Or use the JMeter Proxy to record identical sessions (one page will be
enough) with each of the browsers and have a look at the captured

Then use variable(s) for the headers that differ, and pass the
variable in to the test plan.
