Perhaps that part is clear enough, after reads number ten or a dozen or so.
I was just came to it puzzling about user-agent headers like this one my
FireFox browser sends.

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:
Gecko/20110628 Ubuntu/10.04 (lucid) Firefox/3.6.18

I suppose it makes sense this basically conforms to searching for the
Mozilla/version, the Gecko/version, the Ubunto/version, the Firefox/version

Just thinking out loud I guess, thanks for all the great work revising these
