How to change the agent string in IE

Here's a snippet of my referrer logs:

Ever wonder what NET CLR 1.0.3705 in your referrer logs means? So did I.

I found out that it's the version of the .Net Framework Internet Explorer (IE) has installed on the computer looking at your page.

Thanks to Google I learned how to change this string to whatever I want.

I wrote up a page on Changing IE Agent Strings as a reference for others.

There has got to be other cool hacks of the agent strings and other data that is passed to web servers by browsers.

Let the fun begin...
