HTTP Header reference?


Greetings.

I've been searching Google for a bit now, and either I'm too stupid or too tired to figure out the perfect search term for it.

Im looking for a reference list of HTTP header info -- e.g, I have a program on Firefox that I can modify to send any header info i want "Safari, Mozilla, Internet Explorer" that sort of thing -- so a web site will believe Im using IE when in fact I am using Firefox.

Does anyone have a reference of what the available "official" headers are? Also, a list of "OS header" responses would be nice, so I could fool something in believing I am a windows 3.1 machine.

Search term you're looking for is "User Agent"...

See here or here. For example, for Internet Explorer 3.0 on Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.11, use
Mozilla/2.0 (compatible; MSIE 3.0; Windows 3.1)
Hope this helps.
