How do I get Selenium-like capabilities while remaining as anonymous as possible?

    Hi, I'm looking for something with web automation capabilities like Selenium that would let me conveniently fake the "browser information" that this site (for example) displays: whoishostingthis.com/tools/user-agent/ (cant post links yet)

    Basically, I need to change the system info available to the javascript environment on a per-request basis, to appear as a different (and genuine) user to the same web app each time I visit a page and post a form, while having javascript enabled. Having a unique IP and user agent string for each request is already not a problem.

    I need this to accomplish something like visiting the same page and posting the same form on the same site 1,000 times in quick succession, without giving any clue that any of the visitors are not unique users.

    Any hint will do, even if the solution doesn't turn out convenient.

    If I'm not mistaken alot of the leak in Selenium is because of the Firefox build they use. Perhaps you could modify it and hardcode in some string arrays to loop through randomly POST them with some spintax thrown in there?

    I like Selenium to, but I've never seen @BloodyNinja 's suggestion before, that looks sweet.
