It isn't at all clear to me that this solves the problem:

- the stock services may have been changed. just because a browser
comes with a device by default doesn't mean it wasn't removed.
- the capabilities of the third party browser may differ from the
capabilities of the stock browser
- user agent shouldn't be use for capability detection in the first place
- what does the (stock) user agent string have to do with "other
software that may be running in addition to the user agent"?
