But IE 6 identifies as Mozilla!  The IE6 part is in a comment!  This
is almost certainly as a result of discrimination against early versions
of IE by sites that looked specifically for the early Netscape Navigator.

A common question on the lynx mailing list used to be what is the
recommended user agent string to spoof to maximise your chances of
sites being prepared to talk to you.  (Lynx is one of the few browsers
whose compile time default user agent string does correctly follow
the HTTP standards.)
