    Hi
    I was just wondering if it is possible to change browser user agent. As I would like to see iphone version of some sites. For eg. Google.com/news is different for iPhone that what it displays on Z10

    Not really, you can only go from mobile to forcing desktop version.

    Not with the in inbuilt browser. You could get an Android port browser from BlackBerry World which would give you the ability, such as boat browser.

    Android port browsers tend to be a pretty poor experience though.

    Or you could create an app and set the user agent

    Legend! Thanks for that!!

    you can also do it for HTML5 WebWorks

    widget element - HTML5/WebWorks for BB10 - BlackBerry Developer

    <widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets"
    xmlns:rim="http://www.blackberry.com/ns/widgets"
    version="string"
    id="string"
    xml:lang="string"
    rim:header="string"
    rim:userAgent="string">
    </widget>


    Basically specify the userAgent in order to spoof another browser. In my case, I used

    Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU iPhone OS 4_3_2 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/533.17.9 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0.2 Mobile/8H7 Safari/6533.18.5

    To spoof an iPhone4.

    My whole config.xml looks like this:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    <widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets"
    xmlns:rim="http://www.blackberry.com/ns/widgets"
    version="1.0.0.10" id="TheViewer"
    rim:userAgent="Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU iPhone OS 4_3_2 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/533.17.9 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0.2 Mobile/8H7 Safari/6533.18.5">

    <rim:loadingScreen backgroundColor="#AAA000" onLocalPageLoad="true">
    <rim:transitionEffect type="zoomIn" />
    </rim:loadingScreen>

    <feature id="blackberry.ui.dialog" required="true" version="1.0.0.10"/>
    <feature id="enable-flash"/>



    <rim:splash src="splash.PNG" />

    <name>The Viewer Mobile</name>
    <author>MY ORGANISATION</author>
    <description>The Viewer Mobile</description>
    <icon src="images\icon.png"/>
    <access subdomains="true" uri="http://10.11.111.42"/>
    <content src="http://10.11.111.42:8001/User/Login"/>
    </widget>

    You can change your user agent with the Evolution Browser, I gather.
