Remove the crypto strength token from the UA string
Steps to reproduce: 1) Load http://www.delorie.com:81/some/url.txt Actual results: The User-Agent string has the token " U;", which signifies that the browser provides crypto support that is stronger than what the "international" builds of Netscape offered circa 1995. Expected results: Expected this long-obsolete token not to be sent on every HTTP request. Additional information: This isn't actually fingerprinting-relevant, but since this is a suggesting UA string change, marking a dependency on the bug tracking suggested UA string changes. IE doesn't send the " U;" token.
