Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

User Agent, JavaScript, cookies and Java?

Is there any way to change User Agent globally or even better if it can be changed per Test basis?

How about JavaScript, cookies or Java?

Re: User Agent, JavaScript, cookies and Java?

It isn't currently possible to change the User Agent, though I could consider adding that in a future release. If you really need it now, you could use curl with a Script service.

You can set cookies in the Edit Test window.

Thanks for fast reply. I

Thanks for fast reply.

I think curl is way too complicated for my skills.

Se it would be really nice to just check box in preferences to do this kind of things.

Re: Thanks for fast reply.

I've made a note of the feature idea. Thanks for the suggestion!

Would also be interested in ability to easily change user-agent

We have an application (uPortal) that responds with a page that requires the client to choose whether they prefer WML/HTML when it doesn't recognize the user-agent header. It would be nice if you could specify headers (or at least user-agent) as an easy to set "advanced" setting in Simon.
