    You mean, what SimpleBrowser has been doing for day 1 ?

    I mean, no aggressive intent here, definitely! But the mere existence of SB, with its ad-filtering capacity etc. has been a trigger in my very decision to buy the tablet here... (this, in spite of its a bit clunky interface... but the dev is working to update it and port to BB10!)

    I believe this is what PlayBook's "Web inspector" does when enabled.

    Kandoo-BB is correct, more or less. The UA switcher is a part of Web Inspector:

    I know what a user agent is. I was asking you what RIM's built in Web inspector is for if it's not nothing to do with user agent.
