Google Chrome and the user agent strings
…ok, so as usually when i go on holidays something big is happening … at least a new browser is being born!
When even all of my non-geek friends are talking about Google Chrome, then Google has shot a big gun again. It was completely kept secret as far as i know and out of the blue they introduce this new browser that has some really neat features despite being an early version. The fact that at the same time they implemented face recognition in Picasa was not even noticed by many, although it is just as well exciting (or worrying:))
I will not do any review of Chrome here, go and try yourself, however i link here a great article that explains how the user agent strings have developed over time. Really, i never knew why IE said “Mozilla”!
