[webkit-gtk] Dynamic user agent

The user agent string is still causing problems in different web sites.
No matter how we change it, there's always a web site broken after the
change. So, I think it's impossible to have a static user agent string
that works for us everywhere. 

What do you think about having different user agent strings depending on
the website? I think in the end it's a matter of pretending to be safari
or chromium, so we could have a list of websites that don't work due to
the user agent, and generate a different string for those. 

If we end up doing this, it would be useful to have a list of websites
currently broken due to the user agent, so please share it here if you
know any of them.
