-- Major improvements in spoofing area by Javier: new Spoofing preferences. Together with inbuild (and not editable) default Odyssey's user-agent, you can now add/edit your own ones.
You also can choose what user agents you want to show on the menu and which didn't. All the user-agents saves in the 'useragents.prefs' placed in Conf , just like 'userscripts.prefs' or 'searchengines.prefs'.
The work which spends on was big, so there can be issues so plz check it carefully and report all bugs and suggestions. Everything localized as well, see bottom of OWB.cd. Thanks Javier!

Very Nice! Is there a way we can donate to Javier for his hard work?

A couple of inputs:

1. When I first installed and ran beta 07, the spoofing was set to an old outdated browser by default. I think it was "Internet Explorer 8". Could this be changed to Odyssey Browser?

2. It would be nice if the selected default or selected spoofing in the preferences were reflected in the spoofing menu. For example, I set Odyssey Web Browser in the preferences but the spoofing menu still shows default settomg as selected instead of Odyssey Web Browser. If this were done then default settings entry could be eliminated from the spoofing menu or changed as I mention in item 3.

3. Is OWB_USER_AGENT environment variable effected by these changes or is it still available to use. If it's available, and item 2 is implemented, then maybe that selection could be changed to "Use Environment Variable". Not to important as with these changes it might not be necessary to use anymore.

Just my thoughts.
Again, very nice work!
