To set the User-Agent, set the httpHeaders property. For example:

put "Mozilla/4.04" into tAgent ##for example
set the httpHeaders to "User-Agent:" && tAgent

I'm not sure of the various user-Agent strings for the standard 
browsers, but I'm sure you can find them on the net.

You'll need to set the httpHeaders before each url call.
