    I went there and got this with Netscape 4.70.

    Your browser is claiming to be: "Mozilla/4.7 [en] (Win98; I)"

    With I.E. 6 I got this.

    Your browser is claiming to be: "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98)"

    Don't know why it says Mozilla/4.0. with IE. :confused:

    Mozilla is a very good browser...

    I went to this site using Opera 7.01 and look what it found :

    Your browser is claiming to be: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; MSIE 5.5; Windows ME) Opera 7.01

    ???


    Don't bother with this.

    Mozilla http://www.mozilla.org/ is used in Netscape also.

    It is not spyware.

    Netscape was going to be called Mozilla but they was not able to use the name but you still see the Mozilla code.


    edsod,

    Yours says : Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; MSIE 5.5; Windows ME) Opera 7.01

    I got to thinking did you have each one open at the same time.
    Maybe it list all that open at one time and not just the browser you use to go there.
    Not a good test if that is why.

    Go here and your get more info.

    I went to your link with Opera 7.01 and found the same
    " Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; MSIE 5.5; Windows ME)
    Opera 7.01 ".

    I didn't open Mozilla 1.2.1 and IE 6.0 SP1 that I also have
    since boot.

    It is true that I have WinME and that I upgraded to IE6.0
    from IE 5.5 SP2.
    ;)

    All these browser sniffing sites say the same

    Mozilla 4.0 compatible, which means that it complies with the basic standards of the web and should correctly display any site coded for a mozilla 4 compatible browser

    then IE6.0

    then NT5.1 which is XP (its based on the NT code base and the last NT was 4 so next one was 5 )
