I recently downloaded a copy of the final version of Windows Me from MSDN and checked out what various browsers send for their User-Agents. Here are the results: IE 5.5 : "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90)" NS 4.74: "Mozilla/4.74 [en] (Win95; U)" Moz M17: "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; m17) Gecko/20000807" Moz M18: "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; m18) Gecko/20000810" Mozilla/Netscape should probably use the same platform info that IE is already using, as was done with bug #31001.
Confirming to get this onto the radar, but we could probably live with this for 6.0 Reassigning to ekrock for a marketing guy opinion about how important this is.

Reassigning back to dveditz so it stays on engineering's bug list radar (and maybe gets picked up by a mozilla community member) instead of dropping into a marketing bug list black hole.

To be 100% compatible with Microsoft I would propose a UA of: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; m18) Gecko/20000811 However, I personally don't like that it adds an extra field to the UA. I believe the important part is "Win 9x 4.90", so I propose a UA of: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; m18) Gecko/20000811 We have updated the development release of our log analysis product to scan for "Win 9x 4.90", so it would work with our software either way.
I would be fine with using Win 9x 4.90 to represent Windows Me. dbaron, does that work with your UA proposal?
The UA proposal says "etc." to accomodate future OSes. This seems like an awfully strange thing to do, but I won't object...
Created attachment 13062 [details] [diff] [review] Patch - Tested on Win95, Win98, WinMe (and Win2000 too).
I agree with dbaron, it's bletcherous. But firstname.lastname@example.org -- who will help with the cvs commit? /be
argh... this is a known dup of one of jud's (?) bugs. I can't seem to find that right now.
