Just what do you suppose I should make of this user-agent string? It’s real. I found it in my logs today.
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; GTB6.3; Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) ; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.30; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.648; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Seriously. We see “MSIE 7.0” in there, which you would initially think of as Internet Explorer 7. But of course, since we also see “Trident/4.0”, we can deduce that this is Internet Explorer 8 running in Compatibility View. So what the hell is “MSIE 6.0” still doing in here?
P.S. Thanks for including the version of .NET CLR… 6 different ways. That certainly is helpful.
