[Trick] Spoof Safari to Identify OS as Mac OS X 10.8

First of all Happy Halloween everyone. Here’s today’s Halloween special spoof post. Yesterday we reported about Apple already testing out the Mac OSX 10.8 courtesy Macrumors web site traffic logs from the past couple of months.

So on this occasion of Halloween how about spoofing yourself as a Mac OSX 10.8 user agent, this prank is courtesy OSXDaily.

  • Launch the Terminal
  • Enter the following command, replacing “http://url.com” no the end with the web address you want to give the user agent to:

curl -A “Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_8) AppleWebKit/535.6.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.2 Safari/535.6.2″ http://url.com

After doing this the results will be reflected in the website logs with the Mac OSX 10.8 user agent for the site you have browsed.Alternatively you can also achieve this through Safari.

Spoofing the OS X 10.8 User Agent through Safari
Open  Safari’s Develop menu, pull down to User Agent and choose “Other” then paste in this:

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_8) AppleWebKit/535.6.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.2 Safari/535.6.2

[How to] Enable Private Browsing on iPad & iPhone with Safari in iOS 5

Do you feel the need to not disclose your browser history to your dear ones?Well now you can do so on your iPhone or iPad having Safari by enabling Private Browsing. This allows you to browse the web without saving a record of browser history, cache, logins, searches, and whatever else would normally be visible to everyone who use your  iOS device.

To Enable Private Browsing you can perform following steps:

  • Tap on “Settings” and then navigate to and tap on “Safari”
  • Under ‘Privacy’ slide the switch next to “Private Browsing” so that it displays “ON”

You can further tweak the Safari privacy by adjusting cookie behavior in the same menu. If you change your mind then, you can disable private browsing by going back to the same menu and sliding ‘ON’ to “OFF”.

If you do any online gift shopping, or a variety of other things on the web that you don’t want your dear one’s to discover, this is a great feature to get used. Other than losing the convenience of saved logins and cookies, there is no harm with leaving private mode enabled all the time.
