Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (TRINIDAD-2141) add a new 'browser-generic' agent
Date Tue, 27 Sep 2011 19:05:24 GMT
The definition is meant to be kept current.  The definition is logically 
the least-common-denominator of the current set of desktop browsers back 
to IE7. If IE7 or some of the early versions of Safari were no longer 
setting the lower bar of capability, the capabilities would increase.
