User-Agent Strings

Please note: this page is in the early stages of construction - I have yet to download the majority of older browser to extract the user-agent string. So please bear with me for the time being (or help by sending me your user-agent string). Thank you.

This page lists some of the most common user-agent strings that browsers send when making a request. You can use these to tailor output to individual browsers. The machine used to extract these user-agent strings for most of these is as follows:

If you feel I have missed your browser (which is more than likely) please contact me through this site, using the browser I have missed, and the user-agent string will be automatically sent to me. You may like to also include a few details, such as the name of your browser, its version, and details about your operating system.

And one last thing to note is that you may like to view the source-code for this page, as the white-space is not preserved. So there may be extra spaces in these strings that you otherwise wouldn't see.
