Setting Up Iphone on Firefox withe User Agent

I’m playing around with WURFL and WALL for creating web applications that can be used on almost any smart or 3G phone existent.

Problem is that I don’t have a smart phone or even an iPhone (well, gota wait for a break from Tmobile) and to test those applications you need one. After some research I found out that you can add any user agent that you want on Firefox User Agent plugin.

Today I have tested this little feature and it is outstanding how it works.

Ok, so this is what you need:

1. Install Firefox User Agent
2. Follow the steps on this little article (click here) to add a iPhone to user agent to your Firefox
3. Go to any site prepared to a seen to any smart phone with the default agent and then, enter again with the iPhone agent set and notice the difference (like http://m.goal.com/)
