Hi Ruchika,

I think no need to extend you can put if condition. like below

if(browser.equals(firefox))
{
  driver=new FirefoxDriver();
}else if(browser.equals(IE))
{
  driver=new InternetExplorerDriver();
}


Thanks
Debasish

Am using Selenium -Webdriver and my tests run on FirefoxDriver(), I want to extend my tests to run on InternetExplorerDriver but with a user-agent, because my tests are for mobile site.

The IE driver does not support changing the user agent, using capabilities or otherwise. Full stop.

Ruchika,
Why is it a mandate that you have to test your site on IE with a changed user agent ? Why wouldn't doing it on FF suffice ?

If you are still bent upon using IE for this then you can make use of Browser Mob Proxy for this. 

1. You would essentially spawn a BMP server
2.  Do a REST call to add a User Agent Header to BMP. 
3. Set the BMP host:port as the proxy in your Capabilities
