Hi Guys,

I think you are arguing over apples and oranges.  According to the W3C DOM, the correct term is User Agent.  I believe 
the reason is that the term "browser" is limiting.   There are other methods and tools that allow access to the internet, 
beyond the browser, which is associated with a PC only.

Hope this helps resolve the issue. :)
