There's a FrameLoaderClient method that is called to get the User-Agent 
and is given a URL, so hooking there and having a list of sites and 
User-Agents would be enough; we could make that list be a text (or 
json) file that would make it easier to update, mapping domain patterns 
to user agents.

That's what we used to do:
