Impersonate other browsers with Chrome

Posted on February 16th, 2012

When testing access scenarios it is useful to impersonate other browers such as Safari or Mobile Safari from a Windows PC. This can be done with Chrome using the following syntax when launching the app. This example impersonates the mobile safari browser on an iPhone.

chrome.exe –user-agent=”Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Mobile/1A543 Safari/419.3″

There are many “user-agent” strings that can be added to this syntax and a google search should discover the correct one required.

This is particularly useful if testing Netscaler configurations where different web pages appear for different browser types.

Customize Page title & favicon on Citrix Web Interface 5.x

Posted on July 13th, 2010

The defaut page title and fav icon logo appear on the browser tab when connecting to the Citrix Web Interface Site.

Shown here:

It is possible to replace the logo with your own one and change the text to be more appropriate.


The logo is:  ..\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\{site name}\media\IcaComboAll.ico

replace with your own .ico file but keep the same file name

Browser Title text

This is picked up from the following file:

..\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\{site name}\languages\

Near the top of the file look for the sections:

DefaultProductName=Citrix XenApp
DesktopProductName=Citrix XenDesktop

and change to your own name.

the bit after the common name cannot be changed in the same way (i.e. the -Applications bit in the above screen grab). This changes depending on the screen you are in from the WI site (Applications, Messages, Preferences, session settings etc)
