Is there any way that I can get chrome to identify itself as a different (or unspecified) browswer?

What you're looking for is a "user agent" switcher. – Mehrdad Mar 30 '11 at 22:58

Create a shortcut to Chrome and edit the path:

...somerandompath/chrome.exe --user-agent="User Agent String"

Some suggestions show how to modify the Chrome dll to further hard set the User Agent String. But this method allows you to keep a single unmodified install supporting multiple possible user agent strings.

This Chrome extension allows you to change navigator.userAgent and navigator.vendor in-browser: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/aafciojnlamllgpkpdkbamkfgbofhgcj

It won't let you change the user agent headers, however.
