Be sure you really want to do this. It could have unintended consequences.

Some web sites that use browser detection based on the user agent string 
might choke. They probably have a "NS or IE" script running, but if your 
string is something like "My browser rocks", get ready to see some pretty 
wonky output.

You have been warned.
