Does anyone know of a way to alter, or add to the IE6 user-agent string that is parsed when viewing websites ?

This is the bit i mean for those who don't know :
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

I came across a program a couple of years ago that let you define the user agent...so you could visit a website posing as google's spider for example. But I can't find it....what exactly are you trying to acheive?

i'm not trying to be l33t or anything, it's just a friend of mine has recently started checking his logs regularly and i wanted to confuse him (Win32 Konquerer, IE8 Linux etc :) ) i've already done it with cURL, i just wondered if there was a way to do it wtih IE.
Also i'd just like to add my nick to my user agent ..
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SPeedY_B)
so i know when it was me that visited my site :)
